No matter what

 

No matter what 
We tell ourselves,

When we look deep
Within

We know that those 
Who follow Christ

Love all,
So let’s begin.

No matter what 
We like to claim,

We know just who   
We shun,

But those who truly 
Follow Christ

Love all,
For we are one.

Still and small

After the earthquake there was a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12; KJV).

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



************************************************

 

Lord God,

Your voice within
Is still and small,

So we need silent prayer
In which to hear you.

You are always present,
Here and now, Lord,

For you fill the world around me,
And within.

I needn’t seek you, yearn for you,
Or wait, Lord,

For in you I live and move,
And have my being.

I just turn to you, believe you,
And receive you, Lord,

For you fill the world around me,
And within.

You’re beside us,
And within us, all the time, Lord,
And when we die
Our spirits merge with yours;

So we’re never far from you,
Or those we’ve lost, Lord,
But very near, forever,
Just like you.
