Man, with up-raised arms, praising God.

In Him I Live and Move and Have My Being

A poem based on Acts 17:28 - For in him we live and move and have our being.

Oh my God; my Father - I cannot;
Do not want to live without You;
You and You alone are the reason
For my very existence;
In You I live and move and have my being.

My soul cries out to You, Lord,
My parched soul thirsts for You.
Please fill me with Your living water;
Quicken my spirit -
Ignite an ever-burning fire within me.

I'll have no part; Indeed I desire not
Man-made rules and rituals;
I have no need of them.
I need only You, my Lord, My Savior -
Jesus of Nazareth, Son of the Living God!

Speak to me, Lord,
Speak to your servant;
Open my ears so that I might hear
Your beloved Voice.
Tell me Your secrets, Lord.

Share with me Your thoughts;
I want to know You, Lord.
I desire to know You more and more -
Draw me ever closer as I seek
Your beloved Face.

You are fathomless
Beyond human comprehension,
And yet You love me;
Yet, you talk to me; share Your thoughts with me
Yet You call me Your child.

Praised be Your Holy Name!
