Wait – ties that bind?

What do you want to believe?
The Glory is flowing,
Church is a joy
and my heart is rejoicing
for the life I am living.
 
I need to hold this,
I think I’m slipping.
Maybe it’s my eyes
that reach too much.
What is God?
Hunger, pain, the wrecking,
the loss.
It’s a fairy-tale, you are crazy
to follow a false respite
 
Be singing when
the rains come down.
I was touched, changed,
went out of shame.
I threw down the old,
I felt I could break
 
Jesus.
What I believe.
He picked me up,
washed my soul clean.
He’s holding my heart
I’m holding His hand.
It’s divine, purified,
this leap – song of mine.
The smile that I smile
when I know. . .
He is MINE.
