How can this be a touch so soft
That feathers weigh it down
And yet that touch a crushing weight
Within my heart is found.
How can this be the heart so sad
From all earths ills and cares
And yet the tears that find me here
His love so gently shares.
How can it be when I have fallen
Into the thorns of life
My strength’s renewed like night to day
Not weighted down by strife.
How can this be with blinded sight
As I strain to clearly see
The truth, the way, the Holy light
Has found its’ way in me.
The weight of love is heavy now
I bow beneath its force
It wraps itself around me tight
My Lord, My God, my Source.
No empty boast of world or man
Shall stop my forward goal
For Love and Joy and Peace untold
Breathe life into my soul.
With love to my Lord and Savior, MJ Johnson
