I long to write a paean to my God. Something that expresses my feelings for Him. I may well keep on trying…
Live for God, my soul, live for God;
For life is His, gladly given,
A yes vote, for you, for me,
Now, and forever in heaven.
Praise your God, my soul, praise your God;
For He is worthy, well worthy,
To receive lauds, and not mere thanks.
All humanity, bend the knee!
Trust in God, my soul, trust in God;
Ever faithful to His children,
Whom He will never ever lose.
Trust, and find deep peace in Him.
Hear from God, my soul, hear from God;
For He speaks, oh yes He speaks:
To your heart, in this moment,
To everyone who truly seeks.
Speak of God, my soul, speak of God;
Others need your loving witness,
Both in your words and your deeds,
For without you, He is helpless.
Gaze on God, my soul, gaze on God;
Let not fear and shame deny,
Out of Eden but copious mercy,
In Lord Jesus, who came to die.
Hide in God, my soul, hide in God;
Hide in Him who’s hidden within,
Reach that inner sanctuary,
Relax and find His strength therein.
Home to God, my soul, home to God;
Till that day, known to Him alone,
Live in love until life’s ebbing,
Jesus there, to bring you home!
