My soul did rise with unseen Breath
The Holy Spirit rose to crest,
and though I had no place to nest
from former day, a heart request,
a Prayer took my life through unseen test.
Die to live and fall to rise-
The shape of birth in a soul’s revise.
Heaven is open at the bend of earth’s heart.
Thus humbled; so graced, God was never apart.
Oh rise within me. Grant open Your sky.
Hear me from Your Kingdom High.
Light that shines too Bright to face.
Open my heart. Find me a place.
Take my ashes of old and scatter the wind.
My heart is repentant with much to rescind.
In the light of your Glory, I bow at the door,
waiting upon your Love’s Joy in the fore.
How can I ever have words even ways,
that tell of the Love that I see in God’s gaze.
Only say this when you see me reach up,
she Loves Him, she’s with Him, for all of her days
