Fill, Fulfill, Refill

Lord, when doubts assail me,
You are more than enough.
Your love fills all my gaps,
All fissures deep within.
Lord, you fulfill my life.
You give my life purpose,
You give me direction
Of how to serve others.
When I give of myself,
Out of the love You gave,
I’ll never be “empty,”
For you refill my heart.

At the World's Bedside

At the world’s bedside, we sing vigil.
We sit, clutching the closeness of worship;
A fleeting stretch of moments where we
Pit the dark and dread of other times
Against Christian faith, and our vigil.

Needing God is key to our knowing;
Which, then, is key to living the Lord.
The testimony of God will change
How we respond to mercy, and love.
Our joys overflow in God’s presence.

At the world’s bedside we sing “Glory!”
We’ll sing, “Allelujah for mercy”
As we obey the Spirit of Christ,
Expectantly walking with Jesus,
Death is to be but an interlude
Of promise, leading to life with God.

And Share My Faith

Help me to show how much I love,
Help me show my heart,
That you may see what I believe,
And share my faith through action.

May my “good deeds” then prove my love,
Bearing fruit for God.
May what I do reveal my heart,
And share my faith through action.

Everyday demands
May irritate and annoy me;
But if I face each crisis
With honor and dignity,
I prove my daily walk remains
With You, O my Lord.
