Love Again

I've been here before;
   what am I so afraid of?
      Feeling like my heart is scored,
         another loss of love.
Yet this is a new thing;
   coming through the door;
      Not knowing what I'm thinking;
         not knowing anymore.

But since this is an old path
   I'm thankful that it's worn.
My heart is feeling its old wrath,
   while I'm feeling so forlorn.

I know what I am made of;
   my heart's being shaped with Hope.
He's as gentle as a dove;
   He lifts me like a rope.
This heartache's old, but I am new;
   I know this Hope who knows me.
In seeing my eyes, I'm seeing You;
   Hope's Word still overthrows me.

Though born in sin, now made for love,
   Your fingerprint's on my life.
By Your Word, I'm born above;
   Your command has made me right.
So I know I'm made for love,
   that is, it's mine to give.
If it's true love, it's from above,
   from You, for You live.

I'll be here as a friend
   with an ear to hear;
      overlooking any sin;
         behind I'll leave some cheer.
I'll be here, as a lover,
   she'll feel like she's my queen.
And for my heart there is no other;
   not here nor in-between.

This time I'm down; a chance to build;
   a chance to draw near You.
Make my faith pure and gild,
   to show Your love so true.
And though I hurt, I'm alive,
   and though I know I've sinned,
      it's still You Who's made me right
         and I will love again.

“Do not lie in wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous;
Do not plunder his resting place;
For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again,
But the wicked shall fall by calamity.” ~ Proverbs 24:15-16
