Dear son, please understand my heart
I want my words to penetrate
To touch you in the deepest part
To change your life, to make you great.
You’ve always been my pride and joy
I want the very best for you
I’d love to take you in my arms
To show you love, to show you truth.
And yet I’ve watched you turn and stray
For spoken words are quickly gone
And other voices, other sounds
Can drown them out, can cause you harm
And spoken words throughout the years
Can get deformed, their meaning blurred
And so I chose to tell my story
Through unchanging written words.
I called the prophets and apostles
Some with kings and some in fetters
Touched them with my Holy Spirit
Told them all to write my letters.
And so, my son, I’ve written you.
My love’s in my unchanging Word
I’m trusting that you’ll pick it up
And that you’ll read what you’ve not heard.
I’ve written letters just for you
Let’s meet each morning without fail
And as you open up my Word
You’ll see each day that “You’ve got mail!”
