Child of grace

Without love
Every tear
Falls on dry ground
Under a scorching sun
Left without a trace
Grace holds
Every tear
In His hand
Never forgets
Who you are
He remembers
You are
His child

Fully known

Who could count every ocean drop
Or hold each snow flake fallen
Who could watch every new babe born
Or number the hairs upon each head
The wonder of it all
His mystery displayed for us to see
Such beauty has drawn me in
To taste and see
To behold in part
What one day
Will be fully known
When God in all His mercy
Seated upon His throne
Will finally take me home

Beauty for ashes

Out of the ashes
Burnt along these ancient banks
A stone of beauty will rise
Precious and filled with glory
Placed into a royal crown
Shining with the majesty of a King
No darkness hides His splendour
No darkness will cover His land
The purest river flows
All who drink from His eternal cup
Will live

Through the storm

I see you through the storm
I’m waiting for the dawn
To rise upon your mercy
To soar upon your grace

You give me eyes of grace to see
With faith your eyes of love for me
You never take your eyes off me
You’re always wanting me to see
Your perfect love poured out in me
Jesus

When I take my eyes off you
Your faithfulness is always true
Helping me to always see
You never take your eyes off me
Your perfect love poured out in me
Jesus

I see you through the storm
I’m waiting for the dawn
To rise upon your mercy
To soar upon your grace

Born to soar

Ground under a burden never to be carried
Carried upon wings that never take off
This flightless bird will never rise above the mountains
Nor feel the thermals beneath its wings
This flightless bird will never soar above the heavens
Nor see the rush of vision beyond the sky
It knows no rest for it has no resting place
Its wings of worry come to cover us all
They are driven by fear outside perfect love
With eyes of faith we mount up on wings of eagles
With eyes of faith perfect love drives out every fear

Final breath

The last will and testament
What will be written on your epitaph
What will be remembered
A life lived without regret
Having all shame and nakedness covered
Eclipsed and transfigured
Clothed with the eternal
With eternity in your heart
Fully realised
No more waiting
No more time
Where finally
It is finished
