The Grasp Of Which I Now Release
by Chris T.
I eat the bread of your mercy each day,
The Manna I collect which you lovingly provide.
Sprinkling my sight with color; no more visions of grey,
Making my footing firm, so no more do I slide.
There was a time ago that I toiled and strived,
In my own power, a fruitless, powerless affair,
Planning and schemes of which I contrived,
Though the warnings of God said to beware.
Then one day I snapped out of this waking dream,
A path that I had been living since I was young,
And I noticed that sin and selfishness were its central theme,
While I hurt souls with the sting of my tongue.
So I gave it all away; my sin and my will,
The self-fulfilling road that led to death,
Putting down the hammer just to be still,
Resting in the Creator’s presence while taking a breath.
Now each day starts without the nervous thought of effort and meaningless attempt,
I rise up in peace, I go about fulfilled and I lay my head upon His gentle peace.
Knowing that the mark of sin upon my life is now stamped exempt,
Because I’ve given Jesus my heart; the grasp of which I now release.
