“Love’s Grace Extolled” a worship poem from L.Willows (God’s Love, Joy of The Lord, God Saves)

Love’s Grace Extolled

Love finds me falling into its grace deep,
a winsome warm wave of sweet callings keep.
Oh follow this near, I could not part far,
from this Heart of calling, a winsome wave’s reap,
here in God’s Love- not by distance nor star.

Find me in the shining of far light above.
It hovers, yet reaches, it come near to love.
Like the twilight that arises as sister to the moon,
Love comes near to touch- I fall into a swoon.

Love finds me falling through a celestial scroll,
tendered with prayers that invoke God’s extol.
Turning my Face to the beauty of Thee.
I am washed, filled within, with the soul of devotee.

“Whispering Futures”, a worship poem from L.Willows (The Glory, God’s Presence, Heaven and Earth)

Whispering Futures

There rises a Tree, tall and strong
with branches high that reach far and long.
Aching not breaking in the Sun’s light
Found in the midst of a deep forest’s blight.

Weep no more. Come beside my shade
beneath the earth’s deepened root glade.
Listen to the stories, there to tell-
cupped in God’s Spirit, watered well.

Clouds run to treetops, gathered to sing,
whispering of futures from our Lord, our King.
Mists rise from Root to branches that sway,
There. Come Tomorrow- in the Light of new Day

Whispering futures from long ago gift.
Clouds float to treetops in angel songs lift.
Aching not breaking, we are drawn to the Sun’s Light
We rise to Home with Godly Invite.

Revelation 22:16 -“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

Zechariah 8:12 —or there shall be a sowing of peace. The vine shall give its fruit, and the ground shall give its produce, and the heavens shall give their dew. And I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.
