Offering

A Poem By Clare Marie // 5/16/2009

Christ our Light, Hope in Darkness
Vine of Life, Source of Strength
Living Water, Living Bread
Essence of the Godly Head
Yoke of Comfort, Rod of Joy
Son of God, Son of Man
Shepherd me, O Dearest God,
Along this weary path I trod
Born of a Virgin, Men to save
Holy Worker, his foster Son
Sweetest Breath of my weakened Soul
Stay, and fill this empty Hole
Lamb of God, Cross's Victim
Holy Priest, Holy Altar
Jesu, emptied of Blood for me
Here I am upon my knee
Offerer Divine, Priest forever
Battered Lord, Risen Saviour
Take this offering of myself
Give it to Abba, God Himself
Made of dust, here I am
Weak and crushed, sinful, small
Cradle me in Your loving Arms
Safe from darkness, sin, harm
Bosom of Comfort, Breast of Love
Father so tender, Creator of me
O Washer of my every tear
Sing away my ever fear
Spirit of Wisdom, Soul of Truth
King of Justice, Lord of all
You whisper in my listening ear:
I am here always; have no fear.

"Out of doubt, out of dark to the day's rising,
I came singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.
To hope's end I rode and to heart's breaking:
Now for wrath, now for ruin and a red nightfall!"

Clare, this was beautiful! I loved all of the titles you used. The beginning was my favorite.

Names

It's amazing how many names and titles there are for Jesus...we should use them more often!

With a message of life to the hopeless/and afraid...

May my words be a light that guides others to the True Light and Word.

January 1, I've got alot of things on my mind
I'm looking at my body through a new spy satellite. try to lift a finger, but I don't think I can make the call, so tell me if I move, 'cause I don't feel anything at all.
