I turn my heart to you,
longing to know you as my friend, my brother.
Wash me thoroughly once again Lord,
cleanse me of my religion,
my disciplines, my practices,
the tools that I turn to
thinking I’ll be ok.
I desire to know you,
your heart, your thoughts, your ways,
your wisdom, your love, your passion, your devotion.
Open my eyes to look back on your kindness and faithfulness,
your merciful interventions into my life,
your always pursuit that carried me through
the valleys and the mountains.
Help me to remember your grace like air,
I lift my voice to thank you
that you’ve never let me go,
to praise you
for making me yours
bringing me into your kingdom of light,
my Lord who is
unchanging, holy, pure love, righteous, gentle, and true
yesterday, today, and forevermore.
