Sometimes I hear a fearful whisper say

You will give deadly snakes instead of fish

You will allow unnecessary pain

And all my lonely hopes will turn to dust

Will it be a diamond, my mind asks

Or will it be a simple river stone?

Yet Lord, I know that coming from Your hand

All river stones are precious beyond price

Sometimes I hear a fearful whisper say

You will forget my story after all

You will somehow get tired of my sin

Somehow refuse to hear me when I call

How well I know all that will never be!

That sign of nail is glue enough to keep

our hands together for this very day

and for eternity

Not only don’t You want to walk away

You cannot do it – all You are says so!

You paid too high a price to make me Yours

Too high a price to ever let me go

A Star of Mine

There’s anger in the air, cold fear inside

all tired and heavy is the April night

when suddenly I see a planet wink


The world is right again, the mind can think…


My happy star, this instant is but ours-

just you and me and He who made us both

who placed me here, who cast you far above,


and when He comes this near, as He just has,

I am no longer fire and fear and dust

but only silence, endless music, love.

She who used to weep, she who sings

once homeless, now all her insides echoing

‘I’ve found my home with You’-

Does she still bear that old name?

Nothing could fill the abyss between now and then

I will never be the same


And who could measure the depth of this endless wonder

that has come over me?

But for the sun on my face I would say I am dreaming –

Me, loved?

Day after day, till death and beyond?


If this were a dream, I’d choose to never wake up again


And it’s a dream indeed, for I am sleeping in His death

I live a life not of this place

the choice has been made


Not mine – all His,

Before the world began
