He hears us He hears us not in the way we want to be heard But in the way we need to be heard He hears our innermost desires Our inner cries, our inner requirements He knows what size fits us It’s never a ‘one size fits all’ But rather a call To ensure we remained called According to his purpose
He hears us He hears our every emotion And fills us up with the notion That we are worthy That we are loved That we are valued That we can rise above Rise above those thoughts that cry out Those ideas that make us doubt That make us search for clout within this world When it is written: ‘we have overcome the world’ and all its spoils
He hears us He hears our heartbeat And knows the rhythm to a t He knows us by the very strand of our hair He knows our every care provided we are willing to cast them unto him Allowing him to bear the weight Because he can and it will never frustrate him It will never make him move away Because our God is near to those who are near to him He draws close like a deer searching for the nearest spring He longs for those moments spent with him In perfect bliss
He strengthens us to raise our head to him ‘Look up child’, he says - turn your eyes to me and don’t look away Don’t hesitate to prostrate To be you, to be vulnerable To be moved, to hunger no more Because he feeds us He pleases us He fills me up with joy Pleasure evermore Oh boy! What more can I say Except to rest in his embrace Except to open my lips to glorify his name
He hears us. He is there for us He will never leave nor forsake us What type of love is this? A one that insists to exist Even before I was formed you knew me You knew my iniquity And still said - ‘she’s for me’
Thank you Lord Thank you Father, you are good I will lift your name and give you praise Because my name calls for it My sheer existence is a call to it A call to give God all the glory and the praise A resounding noise Jericho is won And He reigns forevermore.
