Speak to me

 

Lord,
I’ve lost my inner peace –
Please fill my mind with calm.
Speak to me, and comfort me;
Restore me with your balm.

Lord,
I’ve lost my inner peace –
Please flood my heart with rest.
Speak to me, and comfort me;
Don’t put me to the test.

Lord,
I’ve lost my inner peace –
Please feed my soul with love.
Speak to me, and comfort me;
Then heal me with your blood.

Each life conceived

 

You are each life conceived; 
Each messy birth;

You are the air we breathe;
All life on earth. 

You are the light we see;
The storms we brave;

You are each heartfelt plea;  
The peace we crave.

You are our comfort here;  
Our daily bread; 

You are the fire we fear;        
The judge we dread.

You are the way to live; 
The pain we face;

You are the love we give;
The source of grace.

You are the food we eat;
The cup we drink;

You are the truth we seek –
Our missing link.
