No longer (for K.B.)

The eternal God is your refuge,
and his everlasting arms are under you.
(Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

1. Abba,
When I can no longer cling to you
With all my might,
Take me in your loving arms, Lord,
Carry me,
And hold me tight.

2. Abba,
When I can no longer hear your voice
Or see your face,
Pardon all my sins and faults, Lord,
Pity me,
And end my race.

3. Abba,
When I can no longer serve you,
And my exile here is done,
Leave my body far behind, Lord,
Marry me,
And make us one.

🖤

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