“Can You See My Soul’s Pew” a Praise poem from L.Willows (Jesus Christ, Faith, Prayer)

a (1)

Yearning, heart learning
all forward to You.
Unknowing, unseeing,
all motions sway to.
Wearing the cares
that long for your view,
Lord, I am calling,
do you see my soul’s pew?

Hoping and trusting
wanting only to be,
Yours in close keeping.
Safely, home. Adoptee.
This, true assembly;
my only heart’s aim.
Lord, I am praising.
Can you touch this heart’s frame?

Make tender what rebels.
Mellow soft what formed loss.
Subdue what cries afar.
Keep me in Your Reign.
Bear near earthen star.

Wearing cares made holy,
simple and sure.
Lord, I am praising,
bowed low, made pure,
Heart, felled to You,
may Your Kingdom endure.

Psalm 143:8
Let me hear Your loving devotion in the morning, for I have put my trust in You. Teach me the way I should walk, for to You I lift up my soul.

“Soaked in Grace”…a worship poem by LWillows

Soaked in Grace

As a tide that rises from east to west,
then bursts from within and turns round to grip
fills with the sands and the stones of the earth…
my heart is loosened, undone at it’s girth.

Winds come home to bring up the surf
swept in with barrels of ancient life’s scrolls.
How deep is the current that follows my heart
before, between and beside all life’s start.

Wave crests fly up and dare mists to the sky.
The Heavens could mingle in clouds that go by.
But here is my footprint sinking in sand,
earthbound, in pebbles at the edge where I stand.

Oh tide of hearts homecoming, souls to be lifted
Eastern star lights all to rise in Love’s gifted.
See how the face shines upon the deep sea?
Holy answer sheds grace and soaks all of me..
