“A Wind Through Reed’s Prayer”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Blessing, God’s Glory, Hearts Lifted)

A Wind Through Reed’s Prayer

I have seen a place where we all rise,
where music awaits that lifts clouds to skies.
All of the heavens are opened by a Gate,
there in the roam of a Paradise state.

Kept by a sweetness, I felt someone near-
all of life’s friendships, everyone dear.
Touched by such heart-songs, there I could dance
all of the songs that seemed from life’s trance.

Here in the midst of such love, I was called
in the joy of a river that worshiped, enthralled.
Stepping out from all that keeps us astray
a Threshold beckoned and swept me away.

There were no tears in this quiet place bright.
Sunshine of warmth beckoned all towards the Light.
I cast off a shoe, then the other, then free-
Soon I was dancing with another like me.

I remember the Motion that swept through me there
cast like some other; like a wind through reed’s prayer.
This from a roam at some heavenly Gate
I rose to a journey in the Spirit’s elate.

Revelation 21:4
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

Psalm 30:11
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.

“When Our Hearts See Jesus”, from L.Willows (Eternity’s Breath, Glory of God, Revival)

When our hearts see Jesus
We behold love’s Root.
All of our forever’s
wrap around in salute.

Here is our beginning,
the One that stood with
Father and Spirit
before Eternity’s breath.

Fathom the futures
that gaze from that Love,
extending embrace,
in the gift of His grace.

Holiness tendered
here for receiving-
Letting, love’s setting,
parted for such needing.

Thirst, we do thirst
and long to come home.
Rain full Lord’s Spirit,
refresh our hearts roam.

Lord, we walk towards you,
journeying still.
As we see Jesus,
the Way fills with Love’s till.

“Holy Moments from Heaven”, a worship poem from L. Willows

a13715988_1747332822179919_703671116264867973_nWe will see Jesus, in the hour near.
Love lets the door press apart, banning all fear.
All kindred hearts will fill with deep sweetened air,
and breathe with the Touch that His Spirit does bear.

Oh such Holy moments from Heaven above,
will hasten our heartbeats with the flood of His Love.
Here do we join in full hope, faith and prayer…
Lost and then found in the gain of God’s Dare.

Calling the Glory of the Kingdom Declared,
Lives speak the Word of His Own unimpaired.
Blessed are the these Hearts with the Holy Beloved One,
We see Jesus today – Our Christ, The Lord’s Son.
