Found here are my treasures
Offered now to You
One of great abundance
Receive, is all to do

Found now is my love
Surrounding you in grace
Blessed without conditions
Fall in my embrace

Where and when a question
I am is the Word clear
Deep within your being
Closer than you here

Both are we in seeking
Desire of your heart
Let me find you now
Let our prayer now start

In Which To Be

You take me to the place
The one in which to be
One of heavens dwelling
Shone through Your body

One of blessed light
Word of only love
Free within the being
Drifting in above

One of soul arising
Body drift away
Spirit of transforming
Born of cross, pathway

Spirit of indwelling
Path of new direction
Bringing in encounters
The light of this connection

Entering Into

A cross of the signing
An entering into
Divinity of knowing
As inner room is the view

A gesture of the many
Recalling, joining in
Of sacrifice of Savior
That frees us from our sin

A binding into love
Of the trinity
Father, Son and Spirit
Seeking, drawing me

Calling to the Spirit
Baptism laid the way
Freedom of surrender
Through me may You pray

Presence of surrounding
Beyond the dwelling place
One of love unbounding
Filled with precious grace

Breathing in Light

Thought within a moment
Of breathing in Your light
Letting go of known
A prayer for new insight

Lungs process the air
Light let soul ingest
Filling of the void
Through love, Your child blessed

Exhale worries hoard
Making room to breathe
Freeing of the me
To my God concede

Emptying the inside
Filling of the light
Warming of the heart
Shining the soul bright

Focus of the now
Your light of which indwells
Overflowing grace
Through acts of love expel

Gratitude of Light

A pause of gratitude
To thank you for the light
Bringing gift of day
Awakening from night

Let me just receive
Of the warming flow
Absorbing of the Spirit
Casts the soul a glow

Feeling from afar
Stirs within the deep
Something of connection
Hope within its keep

Binding of one body
As free for us all
Reflect with inner beauty
The message of the call

After Snowfall

Winters scene is stilling
Whispering soul’s peace
Calling heart to join
Cares now to release

Pause here of fulfillment
Creators plan in place
Song of wordless prayer
In spirit of embrace

Solitude of beauty
Grace blankets the scene
Purest white of cover
Movement so serene

Silence of the gifting
Receiver blessed above
Found beyond oneself
A word of only love

A Covering

A pasture of pure white
Is laid in morning clear
Creation stills its living
To partake in what’s appeared

Beauty of the changing
No longer death of brown
Hope in lights reflecting
Gift that’s been laid down

Renewal of a question
Of mercy that I need
A truth that has been offered
If my will concedes

A visual symbolic
Won by a field of blood
Touched by breath of Spirit
A longing, bonding floods

In guilt of my drab sin
Of winters cold embrace
Oh Jesus bless me pure
Your covering of grace

Desire for Your mercy
Give life to frozen heart
Robe divine in blessing
My only hope impart

Let joy be in the scene
Hope arise in You
You’ve covered all in love
Making all things new

Voyage of a Gentle Touch

Sit with me and gaze upon
Beauty falling from up high
Dwell within the grand design
Questions ponder, asking why?

Flakes which fill the view entire
Falling from a distance great
Voyage of a gentle touch
The pure descends to clean the slate

All is covered by this grace
The scene is changed in moment still
Silent beauty covers all
Time is paused in winters chill

Who is this God with power great?
Who reaches out to change our view?
Who sent His Son with tenderness
To cover us and make us new

Born above, gift unique
Falls upon this furrowed brow
The frozen melts with touch beyond
Waits upon acceptance now

So sit and dwell upon the scene
So much love to contemplate
Accepting blessings from above
Gratefulness in mercy great

Song of the Abbey

Voices of the holy
Sing from another place
Words within the heart
Echo with Your grace

Hymns of abbeys building
Born of monks insight
Voice of presence joining
Beauty beyond sight

One beyond all time
Flow from side to side
Mix of high and low
With angels song reside

From the depth of soul
To the rafters high
Filling of the need
Of our deepest cry

Coming Storm

Coming storm, through rising dawn
Apprehension in the air
Still my soul, love of God
Consumer of my fear

Prepare the way, dally not
On focused tasks attend
Procrastination flee from me
On You I will depend

In moment now, when time has come
Done what I can do
I let go with praying hands
Faith of trust in You

You know my hope, in what I want
I‟ll pray for one thing more
That I’ll rejoice in what’s to be
My soul you will ensure
