Dedication

Lead me beside the water

lay my head so I may drink

bleed my soul of envy

breathe death into me.

I have suffered a thousand lives

mistaken for a Queen;

a faceless mirror beast,

gilded servant dressed

in weeds.

Lead me to the mountain

take my life for God.

I’ll wake up in the morning

still breathing-still grieving

a believer ever more.

Lead me to the pyre

feed my soul the fire-Holy Spirit

keep me breathing, broken soul

still bleeding out my heart

redeeming.

Keep me whole-forgive me

and lead me to the water

lay my head to drink.

I will be Your faithful

through burden and defeat.
