18.5.23: Heaven on earth

Garden at the Nunnery, Isle of Man; Ruth Kirk.

Yesterday morning, when I was worshipping in silence, this prayer came to me so simply, joyfully and insistently that I just had to write it down.

I love you, LORD (Psalm 18:1; NLT). 

I love you,
And you love me.
My sins are gone,
You’ve set me free
To live with you
In heaven, Lord,
On earth.

You love me,
And I love you.
Lord, you’ve saved me,
Made me new,
And all I want:
To be like you,
On earth.

I in you,
And you in me:
Lord, we’re one,
So we can be
In paradise,
Together, here
On earth.

The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).
