God/ Ever Longed For

 

God/ ever longed for/

ever found/ ever out of reach/

ungraspable/ unnameable/

and yearned for more than life itself/

make yourself known to me/

I make my home with you

exactly as I am/

you are the bread I hunger for/

touch me today with the knowledge of you/

tell me of your free love/

so that I can love freely/

help me to trust you

so my fears won’t overwhelm me/

you are who love is and

love is where you are/

this is the kingdom I want

to belong to/

and you can make it possible for me/

this is how I praise you/

amen

 

(Matthew 6:9-16)
