Who?

milky-way-1023340_1920

Lord of Mercy, who can dwell?
Who can live behind the veil?
Who is blameless? Who is right?
Who dares enter Clouds of Light?

Who is able? Who shall stand?
Who completes all Your commands?
Who is faultless? Who is good?
Who is cleansed by bulls and blood?

Lord of Mercy, who will pay?
I have no lamb and I’m afraid,
Am I helpless? Who will come?
Who will lead me safely on?

Who will ransom? Who will plead?
Who will enter in for me?
Who is spotless? Who is pure?
Who can walk there and endure?

Lord of Mercy, who can dwell?
Who can live behind the veil?

Behind the lines

O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill?

He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart;  who does not slander with his tongue and does no evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend;  in whose eyes a vile person is despised, but who honors those who fear the LORD; who swears to his own hurt and does not change; who does not put out his money at interest and does not take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things shall never be moved. (Psalm 15 ESV)

Love Known

love-699480_1920

If love is known by sacrifice,
How well do we love?
If love is known by compassion,
How well do we love?

If love is known by time in prayer,
How well do we love?
If love is known by our actions,
How well do we love?

If love is known by what we say,
How well do we love?
If love hopes and endures all things,
How well do we love?

If love is known by choices made,
How well do we love?
If love covers multiple sins,
How well do we love?

If love is patient and it’s kind,
How well do we love?
If love is laying down our lives,
How well do we love?

Behind the lines

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.

No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another (John 15:9-17 ESV).

In Memory

bread-72103_1280Comforter, Holy Father,
We worship You,
Jesus, our Lord and Savior,
We worship You.

We commune in memory,
Take the Bread and Wine of Calvary,

And we worship in memory,
As You stand in victory,
And we worship in memory,
Because of You, King of kings,
We worship You,
We worship You.

Cursed and Broken Sacrifice,
We worship You,
The death of death is Your life,
We worship You.

We come to the table,
Because of what You’ve done,
We’re hungry and grateful,
Because of what You’ve done.

And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood. (Luke 22:19-20 ESV)
