Summer Season

In the summer of my soul
Your loving warmth excites,
              Brings forth a bright, lush bloom,
              Expands to fill each space
              Within my heart, my soul.
I’ll respond with loving acts,
              As Jesus Christ modeled.
Your spirit lives within,
              Directing all my thought,
              Directing every act.
I’ve grown to know Your Presence
Is always there, will never leave.
