WOUNDED

Jesus Christ said: “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My Yoke upon you and learn from Me for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My Yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28-30

Oh wounded world when will you know

Almighty God who loves you so

As you slip and slide

He holds fast and clings

Keeping safe the smallest of things

 

His children broken

Saddened by suffering and trials

Not listening when He has spoken

Wandering lost as they travel the miles

 

Cast out dark shadows

Reach now for the sunlight

Breathe deeply the air fresh each day

While His Love surrounds you

And His Hand leads The Way

 

We are made to live sown deeply within God’s Heart

Not ever to be apart

Standing alone without Him

 

“Come Home”, He says

“And I will wait

Patiently and lovingly at that Strait Gate”

Where rivers of Living Water ripple 

And splash over the edge

Falling like drops of silver starlight

So bright

Hear their sound as they run

Then flow in these

As their wondrous Gift is won.
