Beggarly Heart

Rating: 3.1

When the heart is hard and parched up,
come upon me with a shower of mercy.

When grace is lost from life,
come with a burst of song.

When tumultuous work raises its din on all sides shutting me out from
beyond, come to me, my lord of silence, with thy peace and rest.

When my beggarly heart sits crouched, shut up in a corner,

break open the door, my king, and come with the ceremony of a king.

When desire blinds the mind with delusion and dust, O thou holy one, thou wakeful, come with thy light and thy thunder. I bow my head to thy feet.

Absolutely abounds with wisdom and beauty and inspires us to pray and trust and open the doors of our hearts to the Creator's well as desire He would break down those doors
