“We Live in The Embrace”, a worship poem by L.Willows


When love comes near us
our hearts part, we bend
like the palm branches
that swoon to attend.
Here is a Kingdom,
One Heaven for the earth.
Here is a Life calling,
a song of rebirth.

When love comes near us
our hearts part, we bend,
fallen from places
that needed to mend.
Here is a Kingdom,
a passage to peace
Life calling grace forward
that joy may release.

When love comes near us
our hearts part, we bend,
seeking, like children
we lean in, we depend.
Here, in Love’s Kingdom
in the reign of such grace
by the cover of Heaven
we live in the embrace.

Daniel 2:44
And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever,

Matthew 25:34
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” The Lord will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name.

Luke 17:21
Nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”
