The same way a flower needs soil
Is our thirsty soul towards You,
As the seed is deeply implanted
And blossoms to something new.
The same way clear water
Removes the scum from every dish,
Is Your cleansing word to wash our heart
Where the grime will be dismissed.
The same way a little child
Upon his parents will depend,
Is Your word as a shield and buckler
When our soul it will defend.
The same way we fall in love
With a hope and joy instilled,
Is Your love bestowed upon us
When our heart and soul You fill.
The same way a sperm
Requires an egg to produce life,
Is our soul as we’re betrothed to You
When You’re our groom and we’re Your bride.
The same way a canvas
Requires paint with an artist too,
Is Your hand that fashions us
To transform and to make new.
The same way a Writer
Will articulate his words,
Is Your law written upon our heart
When You become our Lord.
The same way a Musician
Produces music to soothe and heal,
Is Your melody within our soul
With Your song that You instil.
And You’re the same through and through;
Never-changing and filled with love;
You’re our inspiration as we learn from You
To spend eternity above.
