I’ve been Pursued

“Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life.”

– Psalm 23:6

Help me make the right decisions, 
Help me think the right thoughts, 
Help me know when to speak 
and when to listen
Help me Lord. 

Help me want what you want
not my will but Father, yours 
Help me surrender all 
Help me be fed 
Till I want no more 
Till I’m filled with awe 
At your spirit at work 

How you intentionally weave things together
All for the pleasure 
Of proving you know me 
Better than anyone or anything 
Of proving your intentions are for good 
Of proving you have intentions and you think of me 

That should be enough 
That will be enough 
because for your love 
I don’t have to suffer 
I don’t have to second guess myself 
it’s secured, it’s what I possess
in abundance 
because I have you 
You’re my boo

That intimacy I crave 
I receive from you 
That intention I hail 
I receive from you 
That date I want 
Let’s go on two! 

You are committed to me
And I to thee 
Your bride indeed 
A blissful matrimony 
A transcendent peace cometh over me 

Because that’s you, you are love 
Showered from above 
Meeting me as God 
Filling me with songs 
The David-kind, I’m stunned 

As I type, I’m won 
All over again 
“I want to be pursued”
I’ve been though, am I rude? 
For never noticing you? 
For never realising that you
Pursued me when I felt I wasn’t enough 
Searched for me so that my heart could beat with love 
So that the rhythm could spell out your name 

‘To God be the Glory’ 
To Him be praised  
Tolulope
He’s raised me from the pits of despair 
He’s given me a smile none can compare
He’s lavished me with gifts and all I want to do is share 
Share them with the world 
So they know of Him too 
Let them know this good, good Father 
And how He can meet them too 

Just where they are 
Just where you are 
He’s never too far 
Lagbaja - except with a face 
One that spells ‘Yahweh’ 
The one that’s too sacred to be explained 
That is too glorious, Moses had to refrain 
From staring directly at those flames 

But yet we have faith 
I have faith 
That He knows my name 
He hears my cries and sees my teary eyes 
He knows when I’m confused and fearing what to do 
And He steps in 
Ready to defend 
Ready to amend 
Ready to avenge 

He is my anchor 
When I’m lost in the waves 
When the wind within my mind 
Moves those thoughts to sway 
He keeps it still 
And He forever will 
Because He is mine
And I His precious daughter, 
how divine!
