More Than Tears


May I be moved
To more than tears
As I think
of Jesus Christ
Love left Heaven
To become
For my sin,

May I be moved
To more than awe
As I contemplate
Your Perfection
Bathed in red
Pleading for
My hopeless state

May I be moved
To more than this;
Of my need
As His blood
And righteousness
Defends Adam’s
Sin-cursed seed

May I be moved
Beyond myself
Lips, fingers
And footsteps shod
With touch-wonder
As I live
Every day
To serve my God
