Free Verse poem on Heart-Full of Praise [Lighthouse Poetry Contest entry for 03/2019].
With tentative heart I searched for you,
not knowing You'd always been there.
With quickening soul I came to you,
my need for you finally laid bare.
With indignant heart I've stood for You,
against those who slander Your Name.
With repentant heart I've come to You,
with hope You'll forgive me my blame.
With heart full of praise I've sung for You,
in chapels both abroad and at home.
My heart full of praise I've sung to You,
so the glory's for You all alone.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
