Burned Out

Burned out
Burned up
God of mercy
Fill my cup
Lord of all
Hear my prayer
For this heart
Not always there
For your love
For your peace
Give me joy
In your release
For your love 
Let me yearn
not out nor up . . . 

Let me burn!

Do You Remember?


You loved me from
The moment I was born.
You gave me hope when
Life seemed all forlorn.

You loved me when
I made a mess of things,
And, brought me back;
Allowed my heart to sing.

Of my hand, 
You never did let go.
You held it close,
Yet, gave me room to grow.

Daddy, now, 
I watch you fail in age,
In health.
Time to turn the final page?

Daddy, Abba, stay!
Never go away!
