the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 107
Thank You Lord

what wonder it brings to my mind
whenever i could think
and to my weary soul
weighing down everything

what beauty still it surely holds
let words flow like before
and when i find myself in sin
i shouldnít hold on anymore

how do i make Christ my treasured possession
that nothing else could matter
and nothing else could take His place
or make my heart flutter

what peace i find each time i return
and feel so very lost
but remembering that He is here
my anchor is the cross

so firm so sure so steady
in times when the wind makes me sway
oh when would i ever be ready
if i never say today

what triviality this life has for me
what little it has to offer
and though i know itíll fade away
even the things we suffer

when Jesus is so very dear
and sweeter things we see
to lay down all those sorrows
and in sullen joy to be

thank you Lord for teaching me
and showing me so much
giving the realisations
of every single touch

what joy shall reign when i can sing
the words you taught to me
and to the world in love to bring
the story of how you gave this liberty

where else child can you rejoice
when the world looks down on you
until you know that nothing matters
but what i say is true

thank you Lord for always coming back
and drawing me near again
even when i threw back the blood
that cost your Son the greatest pain
