With all I am, I called your Name,
My heart in the pause of mortal pain.
No night must hold my form from you
Or bind my veiled and shadowed view.
Instead I am a child forgiven;
Comforted, held, healed and forgiven.
I am your own, redeemed; love-driven.
Alive to seek you in a daily wake.
All Heaven’s quake in the hush of Name’s sake.
When called by You such Love reveals
Your power, Lord, Christ Jesus heals.

Wrapped in God’s Nature
Heart curves to the Face of such beauty seen,
His Nature’s sweet bidding upon tender lights gleaned,
easing all burdens and the graspings that lean,
in the ancient cathedral of God’s sweet serene.
Come close and allow me to breathe all of You
Love blesses each morning that sprinkles Your dew,
I pray into Your wonders as they wrap me full through,
Your Hidden – what Beauty! We are safe in Your pew.
The Heavens fly through in the treetops soft swing.
The Cathedral is hushed by the joy of our King.
Wrapped in His nature, the Peace of God sings.
And loved in Forever, we rejoice worshiping.

One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple.
Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will behold a far-distant land.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
