And let You rule in my heart.
As I embraced Your love for me,
Had faith in what I could not see,
I served You from the very start.
When disappointments came,
Went forward with my eyes on You.
Held on, unwavering and sure
That in Your hands I was secure.
I sought Your lead for what to do.
In time, it was too much,
Strong inner conflict, pain so deep.
In anger I began to doubt,
Decided I would shut You out,
My faith in You no longer keep.
I closed my heart to You.
Was such a lonely time for me,
But stubborn spirit reigned within,
Afraid to turn to You again.
Convinced this was how things must be.
You tried to speak to me.
I would not listen to Your voice.
Remained resistant to Your touch,
I felt it all had been too much.
Resolved to stick beside my choice.
But You did not give up,
Kept speaking words of love to me.
You searched for any tiny crack,
Some room to work to get me back.
I once again was listening.
One night I opened up.
In love, You listened to me talk.
You ran to meet me then and there
With words that showed Your love and care.
You wanted me to with You walk.
In time, I let You in,
My hope and faith in You restored.
You looked inside to find Your place,
I let You back in to my space
And once again I called You Lord.
