Silent Need


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.
