Of Dust and Love

As You knew my frame,
   You remembered I am dust.
Yet You remained the same,
   and You did as You must.
You came to me and gave Your love
   and I was made undone.
Your Spirit came, like a dove,
   and I became Your son.

Now You come again
   after I had fell.
You looked beyond my sin
   bringing Your loving well.
You had asked, "Do you love Me?"
   and I was caught off guard.
In Your seeking to make me free
   I saw my heart was hard.

Yet there You were and there I was
   with Your question of love.
Freeing me from my dust
   was Your Spirit's dove.

You took this dust and made it clay
   by the water of Your Spirit.
And as it is, now this day,
   I tell that all may hear it.
So now I go to feed Your sheep
   that I may love You, Lord.
I free them all from the deep
   because I am adored.

I tell you all that if you're His
   reminding you you're adored.
Walk again in this bliss
   if He is your Lord.

You have a gift that came from Him,
   you're tasked to give it back.
So rise up from your sin
   getting back on Jesus' track. 
Use your gift and love His sheep
   just as He empowers.
Raise them up from the dark and deep
   while we have the daylight hours.

We are the dust that's been made clay
   by the water of His Spirit.
And as it is, now this day,
   go tell all that they may hear it.
See us now go to feed Your sheep
   that we may love You, Lord.
We free them all from the deep
   because we are adored.
