With God’s glory around me I find deep in my soul:
a longing, a seeking, a need to be whole.
To crawl out of the box, to present the real me;
the person God knows, who’s not easily seen.
I bring to this moment a joy, yet a dread:
an excitement, a query, a truth yet unsaid.
He brings to this moment, a quickening breath:
a promise, a future, life beyond death.
To see me through His glory beyond all my sin,
His presence: His conscience alive deep within.
To stand free in His glory, being all I can be:
seeing Him as Creator, and I truly me.
