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.
