“Speak Oh Lord, Into This Day”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Heart Dedication, Invocation, Be a Blessing)

Speak Oh Lord, Into This Day

Speak Oh Lord, into this day
we long to see, to walk in your way.
unbind us each from yesterday’s loss
and find us near in your Holy Cross.

Take our hearts, they are Your own,
Call the ones from faraway roam-
Cover with song that whispers “Home”.

Pass again as if in Birth,
give all recall of Your Worth-
bless all the nations from your earth.

We, the Love spires that reach to You,
like prayers that call each voice into view.
May Thy Kingdom come and bless the Way.
Speak Oh Lord, into this Day.

Psalm 27:4 —One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.

Psalm 27:8 —You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, LORD, do I seek.

Ezekiel 34:26 —And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing.

My own is so broken for all in the Fire,
how can one weep for the world’s heart entire?
Feeling through lines and the borders of all –
the anguish, the death and the cries of man’s call.

Wake us and give us the strength to pursue
each entry that beckons with evil’s review.
For World without check upon fire in the dark
brings tremors in the morn when we wake with a start.

Pray, Lord give me passion to ease pain of grief,
Let all of your people find Mercy’s relief.
Round all the people and tender them Near…
Gather all Good; fold Him in all tears.
