I Dance For You

This post goes along with my previous one.  We had XLT tonight and I was inspired to write this.

Dear Jesus, my brother

I dance for you, I dance for you

This is my prayer to you

Sometimes words are few

So I just dance for you

You walked to Calvary

Carrying a cross so heavy

You wanted to set me free

So I dance for you to see

Oh the pain you bear

From my sins, it isn’t fair

But nor was I fair

So I dance in your care

EVerywhere you come from

To save all, not just some

Our Savior you did become

To dance for you I come

Now I am here

Setting aside all fear

To me you are very near

I dance in your love clear

I dance for you, I dance for you

This is my prayer to you

Sometimes words are few

So I just dance for you

With love, your sister

Maybe they can read this before we dance at the prayer service…

He Died

There He is, hanging on the cross,

The Savior of our broken world;

Once upon a time died for us.

How painful it must have been,

To die in that horrible way;

Will we make Him do it again?

A Simple Prayer and Response

Yesterday while recreating in the aspirant community room watching a movie, two poems came to my pen and paper.  The first is a prayer coming from me and the second is one in response from the Lord.  Whether or not He was speaking to my heart, I am not sure.  It is what flowed onto my paper and I love them.

Oh great God, Lord of all

Please hear this my call

My heart beats with love

Have you sent this from above

The yearning is so very strong

To be where I am to belong

Dear Lord I fail to see

How this can all really be

Many times I understand

The passion of this land

Then hurt really creeps in

And the doubt does begin

Lord, strength I need

Give me the words to heed

Without you, lost I remain

With you, love I cannot contain

So please stay at my side

Lord with you I wish to abide

—–

Dear child, I love you so

This I want you to know

Hard times will be there

Remember that I do care

Carry this your own cross

Count nothing as a loss

As the days go on by

afraSend your sorrows in a sigh

Give them all to me

Spread love for all to see

You are meant for things great

In a world with much hate

Be not afraid of life to come

I know where you are from

Your experience do share

For your heart is full of care

Be patient in all you do

My child, I truly love you

I Will Not Forget

How could we forget

What you did that day

To save us from sin

Dying upon the cross

How could we forget

The love flowing outpoured

From the Father through Son

Alive in the Holy Spirit

Lord I will not forget

You live deep in me

Guide my every move

So I may be like you

How could we forget

That our living each day

Going about our lives

Is a gift from you

How could we forget

The call you put in us

To be holy and true

Seeing you grace everywhere

Lord I will not forget

You live deep in me

Guide my every move

So I may be like you

Oh Lord, I will not forget

I will not forget again

I will not forget
