"From Me to you, All that I AM, My precious little jewel"
O, Father, how well Thou know my ache within
to seek Thy Face; to know Thee true
to bear much fruit; to probe the mystery of Thine Heart
to not stop there, yet pass it on
Thy Love, Thy Life, I pray impart
Thy Son, my Savior,
through thorn and thistle thick
has shown to me Thy grand and open Door
A blessed place, Thy Tabernacle
most sacred and most pure
Dare I even set afoot
upon Thy Holy Ground?
I catch a glimpse of Thine loving Eyes
and Arms outstretched to draw me nigh
My heart cannot contain itself for it has found Thee Home
I canst but stare into Thine Eyes
awash in Wisdom, Truth and Life
Now I find with eyes that see and ears that hear
I listen to what Thou hast to teach
with silent speech,
yet loud and clear.
"There are two trees ~ one 'Death'; one 'Life'
Each man, a leaf upon the tree of 'Death', for sin hath put him there
But not for long,
for with two branches cut from 'Death' a humble Cross to bear
'Life' hung upon the Cross of 'Death', yet there to claim sweet victory
'Life' descended to the depths, deserted and alone
Whence three days passed 'Life' did ascend to reign on high upon His
Tho' passage free from 'Death' to 'Life' not all will heed the call
For those who will, a branch they'll find prepared for them especially
Notched and grooved and grafted in ~ 'Life' now theirs eternally."
With lesson taught, I pray Thee learned, I ask, "Why me?",
for who am I to learn such great and mighty things?
"I promise to be found by those who seek My Face,
with heart and soul and mind.
From Me to you, All that I AM, My precious little jewel."11/11/01
