Escape Velocity - Poem by Mark Walters

A slumber in the light of day
My comfort zone, tar baby's arms
In depravity I slept away
Till true love spoke Your charms

Through tears of joy I gave a shout
Your loving arms outstretched to me
Son light waxen warm about
Loosed my bands and set me free

My arms in praise shot skyward
My sinful heart of rocky clay
Was melted by my loving Lord
Whose riven side opened the way

Loving looks from Jesus' brow
Colored tear stains down my face
Breaking shards that were my heart
Freed now by His amazing Grace!

My wings are opened with His breath
As the Spirit gains control
I gently rise above the death
Jesus' Love has made me whole
