as the bird from her cage

Words of praise were forged in my depths

            long before I knew;

Whispering glories were inscribed on my soul,

            glories ascribed to You.

Threads of promise were sewn into my heart,

            elegant, and true;

Seeds of liberation were sown within my breast,

            ones that now burst through.

 

Your Spirit, like the wind,

            shuttles in the breeze,

Ravaging the oceans,

            ruffling the trees;

Your Spirit is Your Word,

            flowing where You please,

Nestling in my chest

            with a ravishing ease.

My soul is released

            in the sweeping of the seas;

As the bird from her cage,

            I am free.
