Shelter Me, Jesus

Days remorseful and remembering
Times of recalling old sadness
Yesteryear’s sins come back to haunt
Shelter me Jesus, from the madness

Sprinkling tears on the face of the past
Memories rushing through my brain
Wasted years of life’s sad longing
Shelter me Jesus, from the pain

Weaving regrets into a tapestry
Threads of silver and of gold
Binding up my tattered heart
Shelter me Jesus, from my soul

On my knees now in humility
Dear Lord, I pray in silent reverie
My spirit cries out for new salvation
Shelter me Jesus, from the enemy

Running towards your open arms
Fleeing from a yonder ghost
Wrapped up in your loving grace
Shelter me Jesus, hold me close

I absolutely love this. It gave me goosebumps. I can't even begin to tell you how much this touched me on a spiritual level. On a writing level it impressed me as well. It's not easy to find rhymes for words like reverie. :) The repetition was always done just right. This is truly a beautiful piece. I would love to put it in my church newsletter, if you're okay with that. I'll include your name and tell them where they can find more of your work. The newsletter goes out to about 250 families. Again this is lovely.
