touch

What we want to do
Not after God’s will
Who will let us be?
What we want to see
Not after God’s heart
Who will let our need
Be met in him?


When you begin
To know death
Is life anew,
When you start
To feel his life
In you
Springs up new
Dedication,
New release,
New determination,
You cease
To count this life
Above all things.


Reach for heaven,
Heavenly is your
Father,
Heavenly are you.
Your spirit, soul,
Body renewed
Is faith
In one you
Feel as death
Nears you.


To love God
Is to want truth.
Die to life
And life renews.
God is life,
Death to you.
Basic as basic gets
Is this truth.
