A Love Letter

Christ on the cross
 One day soon
So very soon
I will return
And take My
Waiting people home
You may be discouraged
In pain
All by yourself
Draw hope
And find Me
I’m close by
Don’t think
I don’t care
Don’t wonder why
People say to do this
Do that and
You’ll be accepted
No, just trust Me
And as a child
Receive
Receive
Life’s here for the taking
Forgiveness of sins
And love to mend
Every heart breaking
Yes, one day soon
I will return
No one; but the Father
Knows the day or the hour
So today
Today
Bow no longer
To darkness
Let new life
Break forth
As you acknowledge
The cross
All that I died for
The life of Me drained
Drained out for you
And each cell bore a name
Yes, your name was there
I remember it clearly
Don’t ever believe
I never loved you enough
Loved you enough
Or failed to care
I want you to know
That the way
Has been paved
For you to return
To your heavenly Father
No longer separated
No longer turned away
Just loved
Accepted
Wanted
Needed
Please listen
I say this again
I love you, My child
From beginning to end

Love Jesus

YOU’VE MADE MY LIFE INTO A TAPESTRY OF GOLD (Song Lyrics)

gold footpath

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

Before I was known in earth
Before the world began
You loved me, cherished me
For me had an awesome plan

And then Love, You hand-stitched me
Placed all intricately
Blew on my finished frame
New life in my family tree

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

All was well in innocence
Then I started changing
Wanting things my own way
Undoing Your arranging

Every little stitch that I
Tried to call my own, it
Undid each stitch You wove
And my life, no longer fit

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

I realized I was wrong
This tapestry, now dull
No more stitches of gold
Just old and drab and null

And so I cried to the Lord
I’m sorry, please rescue me
Sew threads of heaven’s love
And may gold again I see

Bridge
Unfold my life dear Lord
Unfold it till it glows
Glows with all of heaven’s light
And joy forever flows

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold
