Poem of Joy in the Lord

By Elizabeth Prata

Lord, open my heart as a flower to receive your sweet drops of mercy.
Place in me desires that align with yours.
Make my conscience tender as a velvet bloom.
Harden in me a firm resolve.

Your majesty is glimpsed in the clouds,
In the towering mountains,
In the fresh dew.
Yet Lord, we want to see you. How long, O Lord?

You are the Rock on which our feet stand!
You are the eagle upon which we fly!
You are the lion that saves!
Give me a persevering spirit until that Day.

Then, and only then, I rest.





Christian writer and Georgia teacher's aide who loves Jesus, a quiet life, art, beauty, and children.
