Paying Attention – a Small Sacrifice

When we give God
Our full attention
And not mention
Our long list of needs
Just sit at His feet
And pay heed
We discover
The lover of our souls
Has His eyes upon us
As He smiles upon us
Singing songs over us with joy
Our God who formed us
Is for us
Transforms us
When we spend time with Christ
All we need
Is found when we seek
God first
He feeds us, our thirst
He attends to
As streams of life-giving
Goodness and mercy
With fullness to us overflow

Zion's Future Glory

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
