I sang halleluiah and danced around the floor.
I wept for my King like many times before.
Tears flowed freely for the One who died for me.
And for His condemnation that has set me free.

I raised my arms unto Him like a babe to his mother.
My deepest desire to be in His arms and no other.
I surrendered my heart and all that was within,
to my Lord and my Savior, I let Him begin.

I basked in His glory and fell upon my knees.
My worries washed away like water to the seas.
I bathed in His Spirit, what a blessed event for me.
I sang halleluiah how great a King is He.

I called upon His love, mercy and grace,
as a brilliant beacon before me, His light shone upon my face.
I cried out His name, forgiveness was my plea.
I sang halleluiah to the One who died for me.

My spirit soared high on silver wings of a dove,
Forgiveness was the key and His gift of eternal love.
I sang halleluiah how great a King is He.
I sang halleluiah for all this Hes done for me.

I like this. It's a good uplifting poem. Thanks.

I like the use of past tense here--unusual in this type of poem. Tweak the meter a bit to make this a top-notch verse!
Brenda Craig07/17/06
A beautiful expression of a worshipping heart.
Edy T Johnson 07/17/06
Your rhythm and rhyme "feel" like "Halleluia!" That is a unique gift, to make the form of your poem part of the message. I like your work, here.

Worship of the King, beautiful!
Donna Haug07/17/06
wonderful expression of worship alone with your God. A little work on the rhythm would make this an excellent piece.
Jen Davis07/18/06
Joyful indeed. My favorite line: "I surrender my heart...I let him begin." Good job.
