soul mates

Like a tree I stand


   In a dry and weary land where there is no water


“See me!” I cry to the Lord, “Cool my tongue with Your water!”


   And He reaches out to touch me in my frailty


And lifts me up to the heavens


   “Cast me not into the Outer Darkness!”


I wail to the One Who can save me

   “But take me now to Yourself!”



He stoops and plants me beside His Living Water


   Then prunes me for His service and His glory


I am rooted firmly, a tree beside deep waters


   I spread my limbs to shade the earth


And give my gift to the world


   I clap my hands



   May all who love the Lord flourish


      May they flourish abundantly
