You embrace our humanity
Sometimes my soul feels pounded,
this pounding is done by me,
and in times like that all I can do is pray, or scatter.
To scatter makes things worse,
to pray gives me a place to stand from,
to open my heart in faith,
knowing all is seen,
I have nothing to hide,
it is impossible,
so no need to run for shelter,
or to seek anything elsewhere.
Oh Lord your mercy and love are infinite,
our struggles you see and know,
for you lived and walked amongst us,
you suffered and died,
and in each life you embrace our humanity.
