I Know You Can, But Who Am I? - Poem by Terry Hopkins

Oh Lord, won't you please fill up
My heart with all your love?
Please shine on me today
Your grace sent from above.
I've got this hole so gaping
Inside me and I need
Some love and light from you, Lord,
On which my soul can feed.
I've tried so hard to find this
In men and jobs and things,
But each one leaves me lacking.
Your love makes my heart sing.
And, Lord, won't you please hurry
And soothe this gnawing ache?
I need your love to heal me
For my heart is about to break.
I beg you, Lord, please help me.
Set unworthiness aside,
And shine your love on me, Lord,
And light me up inside.
