TAKE … with vocal

Hi
A few days back, Dale added her nice demo vocal to my song, Take, written a few weeks back amid an unexpected 36-hour two night retreat.  I just needed time out … with God, with the scriptures, with myself, and my favourite sort of place, the beach.  Too much was happening around me (none of it, in and of itself, “bad”) Simply too much attention being given to future things – in ministry, retirement, travel, family, health, well-being.  Not enough living in the “now” … in the moment.
So, I wrote this song, as shared previously.  I had resolved I would not write a song while away.  I guess God and I had other ideas.  It is how I’ve journaled over the years.

Blessings,
David

Here I am, open,
Take every part
Take all I am, Lord
Mind, soul and heart
Grace wash all over me
Hold me … within
Take all I offer
Renewing … begin.

Shine out your light, Lord
On spaces so dark
Make known your presence
When life’s pulled apart
There in the struggles
Enough is enough
There is your freedom
Your beauty, your touch

Live in each moment
Rejoice in the now
Consider the lilies
This moment, this hour
“Come to the water
Be thirsty no more” (0, to)
Find you each morning
to welcome, adore

Mmm …
mmm …

“Come to the water
Be thirsty no more” (O, to)
Find you each morning
to welcome, adore
