Still My Heart

During the quietness, on Christmas Day, I wrote the following poem. The first stanza burst forth as a prayerful song in my heart. I found myself singing and humming it all day. Later, I sat down and worked on the remainder in meditation concluding with a crescendo of praise.

Still My Heart

Still my heart, dear Lord.
Still my heart, dear Lord.
Still my heart, dear Lord.
In quiet present of your presence.

I come to you, Jehovah.
I come to you, Jehovah.
I come to you, Jehovah.
With emptied hands and broken heart.

I honor you, Immanuel.
I honor you, Immanuel.
I honor you, Immanuel.
Holy gift to all humanity.

I’m trusting you, our Savior.
I’m trusting you, our Savior.
I’m trusting you, our Savior.
Sins wiped clean—never to be seen.

Glory to my King.
Glory to my King.
Glory to my King.
Reigning power of eternity.
