Overwhelming Love

You cut through my defences
Like a knife through butter
You disarmed me with Your loving voice
I was in a rage, in turmoil
Bitterness had darkened my vision
But Your love came like a soothing light
You stilled my beating heart with a gentle touch

That pain that had incarcerated my soul
You lifted from me
You banished my tempest of sorrows
Even though I offered nothing
You showed me a river of kindness
And bade me to come and swim

My heart aches for you
I have to know this God
Who has done so much for me
This God who shocked me with kindness
Who heard the silent cry of my heart
All that’s within me cries out for Your presence
Let us meet again
And let me tell You
How much what You did meant to me
