advent poem

this poem reflects the season of life that we are walking through. we had read Habakuk and afterwards wrote this poem. i feel like it connects to where we are and to the advent season.

Come, hear my voice.

Come, hear my cry.

Come, lift me up Lord.

For my soul is dry.

Come, bring restoration.

Come, bring new life.

Come, in my affliction, Lord.

For I am in deep strife.

My heart aches with pain.

My feet crumble beneath me

but you, Oh God, have rid me of my stain.

You are my healer, restorer.

You are my all.

You are my everything.

You have heard my voice.

You have heard my cry.

You lifted me up

My soul, no longer dry.

You have brought restoration.

You have brought new life.

You came in my affliction and fixed my strife.

You have healed my pain.

You strengthen my feet beneath me.

You, oh God, have rid me of my stain.
