Standing on Rock in a river that runs
Rushing, the waters – they dance to a sum.

“Our light, that light, can you see it, are you there?
Do you hear us, did you see that, the callings, the cares?
In life’s mist asunder, we are gathered, hearts bared
in the thunder, struck from stillness, bearing our wares.”

Hearts filled with prayer swept full in the passing,
living towards Love in the Glory Outlasting.
Lead us, precede us, the ones in such waiting.
Still, all the voices with the murmur pulsating.

Gather us Peace, light us as Yours
Run through our rivers with waters that pour.
Keep our hearts as Your children at home, at home.
Never to question, to be lost nor to roam.

Give lanterns that guide all safe through the Night.
Touch every heart and bless us with sight.

Holy Beloved, lift all, each one to hope’s bright,
Your Glory outlasts, we belong to Your Light.

Ephesians 1:10 -“As a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.”

Take Us to Church

Take us to church this morning, this day.
Take all our hearts in a chorus that prays,
singing together in praises that say-
We belong to you forever, and cannot stay away.

In this Gathering-Home, Your own place alone,
we rest with you Jesus -from all of life’s roam.
Hushed in the midst of Your Spirit’s delight,
calmed in the Love of Your Kingdom’s invite.

Take us to church in the promise of Life.
Sanctify us as we gather through strife.
Bless every heart that enters the Door,
that thirsts and drinks, and receives Our Lord’s pour.

Psalm 100:3 —Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Ephesians 2:19-22 —So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.

“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.
