Gather Strength

We live our lives messy, lost in the crowd

Lovin’ and stumblin’, and singin’ out loud

Smilin’ at strangers, if they’re lucky enough

To catch us, our glimpses; we walk proud and tough

Once in a while, we remember and see

The beautiful faces, God made us to be

Stop long enough, to gaze at reflected

Eyes that were once full of hope, resurrected

Stand still and wait, for a moment in time

And let Spirit’s breath, clear away tangled mind

Undo, untangle, renew and restore

God’s plan is true enough, not to ignore

He gave us salvation, His son bore the pain

And so I kneel down, gather strength, again.
