Faithfulness


You delight over me with singing
when I have no song
lifting my face to yours
inviting me to dance
reminding me 
that you are the music

and you have chosen me
as your bride

Breathing your life into mine
when I am breathless
renewed, I rise
gently leading me beside still waters
I am compelled to follow

Though my confession of faith
a mere pittance
widowed and poor
unworthy
you rejoice in my offering
accepted
cleansing me
clothing me
in garments
reserved for a prodigal
