He gives the song


In my heart

a melody springs

words not birthed in me—

by breath of heaven, first conceived

and played back for composer king.


Thus does he

bid this soul to sing

encamped where love wells strong—

resigned to wait victory’s song

under a canopy of mercy wings.

Composer and author of life…He gives the song.

Psalm 63:7 “Because you are my help I sing in the shadow of your wings.”*
