Come to me

Come to me
in contemplation –
Let my light and love
Flow in.

Come to me
In contemplation –
Free from weariness
And sin.

Come to me
In contemplation –
Listen for my voice

Come to me
In contemplation –
Drop the need to strive
And win.


Jesus said, “Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28; NLT).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “ I am the light of the world” (John 9:5; NLT).

This is my dearly loved Son. Listen to him (Mark 9:7; NLT).

Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all” (Mark 9:35; NIV).


Dust and ashes

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

I am nothing but dust and ashes (Genesis 18:27; NIV).

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

You are my God (Psalm 31:14; NLT).


You fill me with joy,
And bliss,
And peace;

You hear my thanks,
And thoughts,
And prayers;

You help me to strive,
And learn,
And grow;

You care, though I’m nothing
But dust,
And ash –

For you live in me,
And I live in you,
And you are my God.
