To Know the Love

I want to know the love You have
and not just in my mind.
Such knowledge of life would make me glad;
such knowledge would be kind.

Show me a love that helps me change;
lead me to love that grants me the will.
Your heart to make mine rearrange;
make this restless thing so very still.

Then as my feet know the earth
I'll truly know Your love.
Then I'll know heaven's mirth;
my body as Your hand's glove.

You will be my life's foundation;
I will be Your instrument.
This, to me, is Salvation;
the joy of the repentant.

It's not enough to have the Name;
it's not enough to live and breathe.
I am desiring to be changed;
that I may know You're pleased.

Desiring more than knowledge of words,
I want to know their very Spirit.
To know my prayers have been heard
and Your presence when I'm near it.

Love me, Lord, like precious clay;
may Your hand be in my life.
To love You, this I pray;
submission, Lord, even in strife.

May all other loves turn gray and fail;
they will die, while You live on.
The Spirit as the wind, I am the sail;
carry me, Lord, to the image of Your Son.

Bob Barra, 9-27-2012
