AN INVITATION

This story has no end
We are espoused to the King
He chose us
We are His elect
He loves His bride
We are the Body of Christ

We feel undeserving
Of His mercy and love
His love knows no bounds
His sacrifice complete
The King of Glory
Bids us come to the Cross
For forgiveness

In surrendering to His will
Our lives are transformed
A softness, tender as a rose
Pervades our being
A faithfulness defines us
In a reciprocal relationship
With our King, the Lamb of God
We are espoused to Him
His love never dies

The Marriage Feast
Is coming soon
Make haste
Accept His proposal
Humble yourself
In service to the King
For many await knowledge
Of His mercy and His love
Love others as He has loved you
Introduce them
To the King of Glory

LORD OF MY LIFE

Lord, I want to do Your work
But who am I
A sinner, a procrastinator
A halfhearted Christian
One who wants to pick and choose
Her assignments
Who judges the importance
Of the mission
Whose participation hinges
On the chances of success

Lord, let me see
Through Your eyes
A role You’ve planned for me
Before time began
An assignment guided only by Your hand
Requiring no special talent
Asking only faith in Your workings
Abandonment of self

I fold my hands in prayer
Humbling my heart
That I might be
Worthy to serve You
Help me participate
Believing in Your grand design
Not known fully to me now
But to be revealed
After I’ve made You Lord
Of my life
Have fought the good fight
And stand before You
On that sea of glass
In eternity
With You
My Lord and Savior
