He Heard My Voice

He Heard My Voice

In childhood innocence
Committing to memory and heart
God-breathed inspired truth
Jesus, the Word who lived among us

Blessed with sensitivity 
Love of words and song
Music enriched beginnings
Jesus loves me and all the little children

In youth, hands raised up
Heart longing for meaning
Tearful cries for love, acceptance
Jesus, rock on shifting sand

In sorrow, songs bring peace
With pain, the Word remembered
Filling heart with hope
Jesus, the way, the truth, the life

With time, forgiveness needed, freely given
Sustaining amazing grace and love
Songs of tears, joy, and worship
Jesus, be my everything

“I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; 
he heard my cry for mercy. 
Because he turned his ear to me, 
I will call on him as long as I live.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭116:1-2‬ ‭NIV‬‬
