Fragile leaves

I know what it’s like to be close to You
So close I feel Your breath whispering across
The leaves of my life
They come alive
Fanned into flame
With the beauty of Your fire
Helping me to see
Into Your eyes
The deepest acceptance of Your love for me
There’s no other like it
There’s no love greater
There’s no one like You
Here my heart is fully content in worship

I know what it’s like to be far from You
So far away that even the darkest shades of despair
Seem like comfort compared to the absence of knowing You

The further away
The deepest pain runs
The closer You are
The greatest joy reigns

So I will return to You my first love
Where Your mercy meets me
With wide open arms grace awaits
As wide as the heavens fill the sky
I will return to You with wide open arms
Where Your breath will blow
Through these fragile leaves once more

Only You

Nothing more exciting
No one more desirable
Than You
Encountering You
In depth
In vision
Beholding You
Outshines all others
Like staring at the sun
Full blaze
There is room for no other
Everything else is blocked
In full light
Of Your glory
To behold You
Is to want no other
To want no other
Is to become like You
To become like You
Is my greatest desire
Nothing more exciting
No one more desirable
Than You
