I Turn to You

You make all things new.
You, of no shadow or turning.
From me I turn to you.

And you take my wayward, shifting heart
as though it were a precious vessel
as though it were your most valuable treasure.

And you draw me, reel me in
you, oh great fisherman of men,
while I fight the line, and toss and turn.

But you keep reeling.
Not giving up, never retreating
you keep beckoning

 until there is nothing in-between.

And under the weight of your love
my submission is invoked
until this world I am able to revoke, once again.

So take my heart, and make it your own
with no shadow or turning,
retreating or dis-owning.

As your own precious vessel
Your valuable treasure
Entirely, utterly yours alone.

You, who makes all things new
You, of no shadow or turning
Help me turn to you.
