Drawn into the arms of true love

As one who wandered, who often stumbled

Who drifted with earthly winds

Blown about here and there

Year after year after year;

Insignificant, lost, superficial and alone.

The will to live, inner sense of eternity nearly gone

Yet, the hand of great tenderness reached out

A touch of mercy came from beyond the Universe

Beyond the natural, a gentleness revealed

Kindness from a place far outside this world

Intimate caring from the Throne of all power

Real authority given creative expression in another human life;

Another object of mercy stands free

Suddenly caught up in comforting revelation

Our God who cares, who makes Himself known

Peace and always, always more.

Messiah who shows us the Father of Glory

Gives life and hope and purpose;

Meaning flows in a clear stream of eternal Spirit rest.

Eyes that can see in and through

Timeless eyes that wept in compassion

Even over a friend, Lazarus and those who mourned with unbelief

Eyes of purest love that compels

The Light of those eyes of beauty

That draws us near to Him

His flock, drawn together as one.
