My Lament And My Grace

March 7, 2013 — 15 Comments

Alone on a hill
Just his voice and mine
I poured out my sadness
To my great Divine

I held out my dry hands
I gave God my wet eyes
I looked up to heaven
and let out my cries

“The stars, Lord, they shine
They’re so easy to find
The whole world knows their place
But where, Lord, am I?

The kings, Lord, they laugh
The world follows their path
They speak, fools rejoice
But where, Lord, is my voice?

Lord, what is it worth
to love in this earth?
If no one can see
Your love burning in me?”

And there, on that hill
The Lord came to my side
He spoke in my heart
His words dried my eyes

“My child, don’t love to be seen
Love, so you yourself can see
For whenever you love
You’re looking at me”

And from that moment on
I’ve understood grace
for whenever I love
I now see God’s face

Poem By Mick Mooney

Love

If God is the light,
love is the spark that makes him ignite…

If God is the way,
love is the path he chooses to take…

If God is the truth,
love is the voice he presents himself through…

If God is the life,
love is his body that makes him alive…

If God is the song,
love is the melody he balances on…

If God is the King,
love is the kingdom he reigns in…

If God is in control,
love is the only means to his goal…

If God is love,
then you are love too…
for you are in him,
and he is in you.

God is love.

Love Is The Greatest

Love Is The Greatest

Love is the greatest
Love is the strongest
Love is the deepest
Love is the longest

Love lifts us up
Love holds us tight
Love heals our wounds
Love makes us light

Love covers our weakness
Love makes us all shine
Love thinks we’re all perfect
Love thinks we’re divine

Love is a friend
Love is a brother
Love is a father
Love is a mother

Love is a kingdom
Love is a seed
Love is a king
Love washes our feet

Love is in all things
Love is the way
Love is eternity
Love is a day

Love is the greatest
Love is the strongest
Love is the deepest
Love is the longest

Love lifts us up
Love holds us tight
Love heals our wounds
Love makes us light

Love helps us hear
Love gives us sight
Love is our hope
Love, our delight

Sometimes I want to cry
But my tears stay repressed,
Refusing to move
Despite my protest

Sometimes I want to groan,
Scream words I detest
But my voice, she too fails me
Despite my request

Sometimes I want to sit down
But the world makes me stand
And so I keep marching
Despite my demands

And in these strange moments
Exposed as a fool
I know of just one person
Whom I can turn to

The King of the fools
The King of the weak
The King of the hurting
The King of the meek

The King who identifies
With those in their faults
And lifts their heads up,
The King who exalts

And so I’m exalted,
Yet not through my works
But through my great King
Who heals my hurts

The King of the fools
The King of the weak
The King of the hurting
The King of the meek

And so I have hope
For my King never fails
To hold me through weakness
Till his strength prevails

The King of the saints
The King of the strong
The King of all grace
To whom I belong!

Always in our joy
Even in despair
Love, our hope, is holding us
Love is always there

From the valley to the mountaintop
From our shame to our delight
Love will never leave us
Love remains our light

For Love, our hope, is greater
Than the present and all time
Love, our good companion
Is Love, our great Divine
