The questions burn within my soul
The passion fills my being
The desire for a hardened heart
To open and find healing
And as I feel it touch my own
The questions slowly rise
If I had walked that same sad path
Would my life hold its matching cries?
Would I still have found my way?
Or would questions be my life?
Would skepticism wrest my world
And try to mold my mind?
Would I have found His tender heart?
My destiny therein?
Would I have known I play a part?
A dying world to tend?
Would I have closed my eyes to truth?
Pretended there was none?
Would I have tried to comprehend
No life beyond this one?
I am told belief takes faith
Yet what but truth is shown?
Is it harder to believe in love
Or in a heart of stone?
Does it bring light in life to say
That faith is nothing but a curse?
To claim there is no deeper rationale
I can’t perceive much worse
Than living life as if it had
No purpose and no reason
Nothing more than an existence
That passes with life’s swift season
I close my eyes and feel the breeze
Whisper to my seeking soul
I feel a love caress my heart
A touch that always makes me whole
Although the way, it might be long
Though tears at times may flow
Though darkness sweeps across the land
Casting shadows over the way I go
Yet still the purpose brightly shines
Its way into my heart
A destiny I know is mine
From this I’ll never part
The heart that seeks is sure to find
A love greater than mind’s reason
A love abiding that cannot die
Or fade with passing seasons
A love that framed the world we see
The very reason and source of life
Creating a bridge to realms beyond
Cutting through the veil like a knife
Pouring passion and love upon these lands
By blood that flowed from a broken heart
The sacrifice fulfilled sin’s demands
And pledges a fresh and spotless start
In choosing love, I’m choosing life
Reaching out with an eternal soul
Speaking hope into a wilting heart
Knowing only love can make it whole
One day a heart will break out and rise
From disbelief’s grey, cheerless prison
Embracing light, and truth and love
Speaking with a heart of joy those glad words:
“He is risen!”
