Seek The Present Moment….
Seek the lost moment, seek.., seek…, seek …….Don’t let it slip away, away, away, away …..
Ask for everything you have lost by neglect, oh by neglect!
Then you shall find love, grace, and light again, yes, again, again, again
Heaven will open up for the ray of hope and joy will shine through the cracks of your heart to illuminate the inner of your soul, oh soul, I long so much for your lost moment, all your lost moments to be rediscovered and reclaimed, but only with flame, the flame of eternal bliss.
Don’t give away to distress, no, no, no, not distress
Look at love with full caress, caress, caress, past and present
For the goodness of the Lord is in-fin-ite-ly immense and overflowing like a self-perpetuating song
His love encloses in my heart, greater than any human heart, greater much greater, much kinder, much worthily longed for than my human heart full of its weakness and miseries
The Lord is the only One who now can help
So hope and trust, worship Him to your utmost
Remember the memories, desires, hungers for Him not for any human beings
To come back, back, back all the way back, and immediately throw yourself into His loving and eagerly waiting arms
I know, I just know, He has longed waiting for you, expecting you to love you, you, you, you, simply you.
Oh, I pray, how I wish you listen and heed my pleading to believe me, what I says, to believe in HIM!
(I am listening to Josh Garrels’ “Slip Away’ wile composing this, trying to make it sound like a pleading…from the bottom of my heart.)
