your voice

oh Lord open your lips
and let your voice go forth
i long to hear your whisper
with an intimacy only your bride knows

open my ears that i might hear
soften my heart that i might listen
let your words be the flame
and my life the fuel

your word saves dying dreams
and your word remembers forgotten hopes
your word brings life everlasting

oh Lord open your lips
and let your voice go forth
fill my ears
with your voice
fill my heart
with your words
fill my mouth
with your flame

oh Lord open your lips
and let your voice go forth
as a flame, a flame from a life consumed
by your holy fire

I'm a technology geek who loves getting away from the computer, and getting out into nature on a good backpacking trip. Never wanting my job or desires to define me. I am a son of the living God. I am constantly aware of my failures and the God who sees all of them yet still loves me and died for me.
