Your Love Broke Through

‘Why have I found favour in your eyes that you should take notice of me, a foreigner?’ – Ruth 2.10

————————-

With gentle eyes you took my fear,

A candlelight you called me home,

A single flame you held me near,

In darkest hour your light shines near,

I’ll never be alone.

——-

Through broken light your hand reached mine,

Compassionate, you held me firm.

You gave me sight when I was blind,

And bathed me in rayed sunshine,

True love my heart will learn.

——-

From dark to light I held to you,

From death to life you made me whole.

I saw your heart, your love broke through.

A single star amongst the blue,

Reflected on my soul.

——-

Your glory shown in clearest haze,

It flooded ceaseless down from that tree.

Your glory, everlasting days…
Why have I found such favoured gaze,

That you should notice me?
