“God’s Love Runs In Goodness”, a Worship Poem from L.Willows (Blessing, God’s Goodness, A New Day)

GOD’S LOVE RUNS IN GOODNESS

Oh, heart, don’t look back,
step forward, come along…
All that is lost, will gain again strong.
God’s love runs in Goodness,
for Grace wins Love’s Song.

Oh, heart, don’t mourn,
you must not be drawn.
The times, they are swift-
seasons pass, they conform,

We are held in His midst
like a wild summer storm.
Oh, heart, don’t look back,
The east comes with a new dawn-

Bringing gifts of life’s future
with Blessing fully drawn.
See the brightness that beckons,
hear the mercy calls ring…
At the Gates of our Lord,
in the announce of our King.

There in the East,
in the clearing that Lights
Angel wings are drawn
into heavenly sights.
Misting, then granting
the dew that brings Day
Hushed, in the dawn
by the Holy that pray.

Oh, heart, don’t look back,
step forward, come along…
All that is lost will gain again strong.
God’s love runs in Goodness
for Grace wins Love’s Song.

PSALM 34:8
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

ROMANS 8:28
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

PSALM 33:19
Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!

“From Heaven’s Glove”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Blessed, God’s Love, Peace)

I rest in soft circles, lace clouds in my heart.
Far from there, peace does not part.
If it wanders, if it strays,
God’s love wind brings it back this way.

Called to be by an unseen hand
here it lives in a sweetened homeland.
Coddled all beside one Guest,
with might that gathers all as Blessed.

When the winds of life, stirred become
stormed, or rifted, pulled by some –
Here within, such Life abides
comforted, tendered from all sides.

Drawn like dew from heaven’s glove,
soaked into each circle of –
this heart of mine with hesed love,
given all from God above.

Thankfulness comes in sweeping hues
like heaven’s dust in the morning dew.
There I am, His child, my why…
blessed and swept into Love’s sky.

“For Tomorrow belongs to You Everywhere”, a poem from L.Willows (God’s Faithfulness, Mercy, Hope)

“For Tomorrow belongs to You Everywhere” from L.Willows

Lord, we are the voices that call out from here.
Of all the day’s dreams, the needs and the cares.
For Tomorrow belongs to You everywhere.

Here in the seeking, There in love’s keeping,
all in the mending, in The Mercy’s deep bending.
Hope’s full reaching, blessed in beseeching.

There, in hearts’ keeping, here in love’s staying,
All in the flight of calls that kept praying.

And to the fore mercy, tendered heart more.
Now, to the new time, we beseech Godly pour.
Rain full Love’s bounty, Reign in Your good.
Bring forward your Kingdom. Open God’s Door!

Greeting your Love in The Mercy’s deep bending.
Heaven and Earth bear sweet in Your tending. 
Lord, we are the voices that call out from here.
For Tomorrow belongs to You everywhere.
