I live in you

All who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them (1 John 4:15; NLT).

My whole being longs for you (Psalm 63:1; NIV).

Christ lives within you (Romans 8:10; NLT).

The Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion (Isaiah 30:18; NLT).



I live in you,
And long for you;

While you, Lord,
Live in me,
And long for me.


Will there be an end?

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain (Revelation 21:4; NLT).

I will give you back your health and heal your wounds (Jeremiah 30:17; NLT).

Rejoice in hope (Romans 12:12; NRSV).



Will there be an end
To all our sorrows?

Will there be an end
To all our fears?

Will there be an end
To all our suffering?

Will there be an end
To all our tears?

Will there be an end
To our depression?

Will there be an end
To all our pain?

Will there be an end
To our exhaustion?

Will we rejoice,
And hope in you again?


They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more (Isaiah 2:4; KJV).

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord (Isaiah 65:25; KJV).

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; NIV).



Show us all
A vision of your light;

Reveal to us
A vision of your truth;

Please give us all
A vision of your peace;

And share with us
A vision of your love.

But, ah – you have already done
All this,

By sending us your Son,
Born here on Earth.

Still, small voice

After the earthquake there was a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12; KJV).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).



Lord, thank you
For your still, small voice
In silent prayer –

For how else could I hear
The thoughts
I constantly suppress?

Looking out

He is not far from any one of us (Acts 17:27; NLT).



Looking out
Across the bay
In darkness,
I can’t see you,
But I hear your voice
And sense your presence,
Feel your nearness,
And experience your love.


Everything I think

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

You also are complete through your union with Christ (Colossians 2:10; NLT).




Everything I think
And feel,

Everything I say
And do,

Good or bad,
It’s part of me,

And I am part
Of you.

Golden light

God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5; NIV).

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it (John 1:5; NLT).

Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth (Genesis 1:15; NLT).

I lavish unfailing love […] on those who love me and obey my commands (Exodus 20:6; NLT).



Golden light
And glowing darkness,

Silver moon,
And shining sea –

Lord, you give us
All these blessings,

And you share them all
With me.
