Soft I lie against your chest
Feeling your heart beat.
Strong arms, my welcome fortress
Steadying me through this life.
You stir desires in me
And that is as it should be
God’s design for full, abundant life
That reaches heavenward.
Alone we fracture.
Together we thrive,
I in you, you in me; there is no other way.
It is for us to treasure this day.
God’s perfect design
Was meant to draw us closer,
Not further away; not shattered.
Yet, everywhere I see pieces.
We pick up the brokenness.
We try to mend it, splice it somehow.
Jagged we cannot fix our inadequacies,
Shoehorned attempts only fail.
We are designed to be God’s full expression,
One way, a perfect design.
To try other things are but substitutes
No matter how tremendous.
We think we know a better way.
We kick against our Creator.
And He waits for us to come to our senses
While we play the prodigal.
His simple design
Is all we need,
Harmony, love, unity body, soul and spirit.
A design for the life to come.
Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
Bride of Christ.
Concepts too magnanimous to comprehend.
Yet, I am His and He is mine.1
This is His perfect design,
A mirror of all that will come for you and me,
A tiny glimpse into His Kingdom, the Kingdom
On earth as it is in heaven.2
Soft I lie against Your chest
Feeling Your heart beat.
Your strength, my welcome fortress
Steadying me through all eternity.
