From the Deep

So alone. So lost. Like a desert parched and dead.
So far. So afraid. Like a bird condemned to earth.

My desperate soul cried out for help.
My heart wept salty tears.
My pain turned into cruel scars.
My life sang bitterness.

So empty. So dark. Like a star forced not to shine.
So hurt. So lonely. Like a night that knows no day.

My eyes refused to see the light.
My tears moved me to grief.
My spirit ran completely dry.
My love had turned to hate.

But my Rescuer, my Savior, my God, my Source,
You brought me up,
From the deep.
You captured me, my wandering soul.
You lifted me,
Restored my faith.
You fulfilled your Word, poured out to me.
You loved me when,
No one should.

So grateful. So free. Like a river just released.
So warm. So peaceful. Like a child in Daddy’s arms.

My indebted soul sings anew.
My heart now weeps for joy.
My sin is washed away through You.
My life reflects your hand.

So full. So glad. Like a robin’s springtime song.
So healed. So forgiven. A sinner saved by grace.

My eyes now open, see the light.
My tears have been dispelled.
My spirit overflows with life.
My love is all for You.

My Rescuer, my Savior, my God, my Source,
You brought me up,
From the deep.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Yes, Rachel, we are bought, paid for, ransomed, and redeemed by the blood of Jesus. Thank you for your poem.

The structure works so well with this piece - and I love the images. Good stuff, Rachel! Thanks for sharing.
