Declared With Gladness


I weep

I’m a child of the Mighty

For reasons best known above

A beggar I came

To His holy name

So wondrous in truth and love.

I sing

As I share in a family

Who saw threatening seas divide

And marched through the sand

To lush promised land

Where other folk stepped aside.

I gasp

As I follow a captive

Who did nothing more than bless

The thorns and the jail

The lash and the nail

Men hating His righteousness.

I wait

And its all for His answers

The King of my heart must arrive

He fashions a place

Beyond time and space

Where ransomed souls laugh and thrive.

I stand

And proclaim hope to others

Who know not their root or end

While Christ holds the key

To set them all free

And smile as their dearest Friend.
