Not Forgotten, Not Forsaken

Taking a moment away from Abba and little girl’s story.

Surrender

img_0348

All you want from me
is everything,
All you desire is that
I give you the core of me,
All that you long for in me
is surrender,
Complete wholehearted trust
in who you are
and who I am in you

Today afresh I surrender,
Today anew I give you my all,
All I am today
and all I hope to become,
I trust you in this place
of uncertainty and lack

Right here, right now
In the questions I trust you,
For you have not brought me this far
to abandon me,
You have not brought me to the mountain
to leave me alone

Pause

The test, the crux
Forgotten, forsaken?
Why so much heartache,
why so much loss
Chosen for this?
The cry of your brethren
How will you answer?
Adonai Eloheinu,
Please answer,
King of the whole earth,
Please answer

Surely you did not save your people
from complete destruction
to leave them alone,
Surely you did not bring them home
to forget them in this dry and weary land

Abba in heaven
Please come
Please answer
Please comfort the heart of Jerusalem
Please comfort the hearts of your people
Please answer the cries deep within
Abba, have mercy
Beautiful one, have mercy

Pause

Today I say yes again
I trust You fully,
Completely,
Wholeheartedly

I give you myself,
my life,
All I am is Yours
for You created me
You made me for Yourself

You are Creator and You are good
There is none like You
No one before You
No one after you

Everlasting Adonai
Who created Jacob,
Beloved Abba
Who formed Israel,
Who redeemed and called Israel by name
And said, You are Mine

Who is like you?
No one
There is not one higher,
Nor one greater
There is not one kinder
Beloved G-d and King
