I'll run to you, Lord


I'll run to you, Lord. I'll run to you, Lord.
Seeing weeping faces,
Living in dark places,
Feeling life's disgraces,
I will run.

I'll run to you, Lord. I'll run to you, Lord.
Seeing mean faces,
Escaping dark places,
Feeling Heavenly graces,
I will run.

I'll run to you, Lord. I'll run to you, Lord
Seeing kind faces,
Living in light places,
Hearing Heavenly praises.
I will run.

I'll run to you, Lord. I'll run to you, Lord.
Finishing the final races,
I will run.

I'll run to you, Lord. I'll run to you, Lord.
Reaching the finishing line to see, Heavenly faces.
Seeing your radiant, loving face,
I will run.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
