This piece I wrote after coming back from a week-long camp called Pulse, where walls were broken down, healing happened, new friends were made and God was praised. I was encouraged to spend time in worship alone with God and this was a product of that. It was the first piece I shared with anyone other than one of my closest friends. For that reason it is momentous and holds a special place in my heart.

Come like rain
Come like Fire
Revive our weary hearts
Renew our inate desire
To know you more, to know you deeper
Lord, sprinkle your words of love over us, that we may sing them Louder, Louder.
Let the song of a generation hungry for you rise up.
Rise up through the hurt
Rise up the pain
Rise up through the anxiety, rejection, depression, sin
Glue our hearts together,
That they may beat wholly as one, for one cause,
To glorify our mighty, worthy Father
Let your sweet words of love, of mercy, of grace soak into our bones,
That we may verbalize how great you are,
How much you love us
Our voices, raised higher than ever, moving like a wave, softly blanketing the ears of our towns, of our nations
We worship you.
