In Other Words

Will you sing over me and my crying heart?
Will you hold my dreams when others fail me?
can I have a place to rest where the light wakes me

and summer defines the sky?

Trace your fingerprint over my eyes so I see the flipside

Mark my words with the silence of humility
and mark my door with the seal of your Word.

lead me through these obstacles,
for I cannot overcome them.
give me the answer to worldly delays:

I write down this glimpse of Your plans --
intricate backward tracings,

riddled with heavenward longings.
I will keep it in a safe place, until I have been overwhelmed by your love
and deserve all the grace that is in my heart.
