Pieces of Your Grace


Heavy stones
Stones of torment
Torment my dreams
Dreams splintered
Splintered without
Without remorse
Remorse of love worn pieces
Pieces of your grace.

Trust

Innocence
Anointed with trust
Unbind me
Healed me
You broke the chain of shame
Your tender eyes

Hope

I had to cherish hope
That tomorrow would come
That the hate would surrender
That each face found shatter
That love would not falter
That you would never throw the first stone.
I had to cherish hope.

(John 8: 10 - "Where are your accusers? Didn't even one of them condemn you?).

Waterfall

Dark drop
A kiss of betrayal
Announcing the end
Your scars
Have drawn me
Into your waterfall
Of healing.

Crimson Stream

Arms ached
Heaviness of my burden
With every piece of me
My weary hands
Began to dance
Fashioned
In your crimson steam.

Mine

Through the open door
The light shines in
That fills my darkness
Hope
In the room of uncharted grace
Faith breaks through the past
As love begins to glow
I listen to your words of truth
You are mine
You are mine.

Silent

Silent blood
Spilled darkness
Faded days
Life is light
Where mist
Peirced dreams.
