May I catch your whisper

🌘

1. Father,
May I catch your whisper
In the chatter
Of my mind.

2. Father,
May I sense your presence
In the beating
Of my heart.

3. Father,
May I glimpse your splendour
In the darkness
Of my soul.

4. Father,
May I know your power
In my weakness:
Make me whole.

1. Lord,
I glimpse you
Sparkling in the dew;
In land and sea,
And in the heavens, too.

2. Lord,
I hear your footsteps
In the trees;
Your voice in storms,
Your whisper in the breeze.

3. Lord,
I see you shine
From every face;
Your love reflected
In the human race.

❤️
