hold my heart,
let me crave your love
more anything this world has to offer.
Draw me to you,
with no hesitation, no walls within me,
help me to run to you,
and enter into your depths of kindness and love.
Thank you for opening your heart,
embracing my shame and guilt first,
loving me into your hand,
granting me faith in your way.
I am dark but lovely,
and I’ve neglected my life,
yet you call and revive me,
you show me the path
to find myself
in your presence and with your people.
I praise you Lord for your love,
your forgiveness, restoration, and hope,
and I bless your Name.
