I sigh for you

 

O, my Lord, I sigh for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I’ll leave my sins behind,  
And try to love all humankind. 

O, my Lord, I long for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I will forgive each foe,
And work to pay back all I owe.

O, my Lord, I yearn for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I’ll never judge, or hate,
And always seek your narrow gate.

O, my Lord, I thirst for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I’ll bravely face each fear, 
And strive to serve your kingdom, here.

Lord God,
There’s no such thing
As an outsider –

A stranger,
Or a foreigner,
Or foe –

There’s only you,
Within us all,
Without exception,

Waiting
To be welcomed
In our hearts.
