To Kiss the Yoke
To kiss the yoke,embrace the cross,
To count all else,in life a loss,
To bow the knee,recommit the heart,
Abide in Your peace,let the struggle depart,
These simple things,I long to do,
Because I’ve given,my life to You,
Please help me Lord,is what I pray,
To please You, in these things today,
To be consumed,within,without,
Delivered, from torment and doubt,
Alive in You,and dead to me,
Completely bound,completely free,
Caught up to heights,I’ve not yet seen,
No more entangled,in between,
To end it all,and start anew,
Completely lost my Lord,in You,
These simple words,frame my desire,
I’ll be the wood,You be the fire,
A wisp of smoke,and ashe I’ll be,
When Your work,is complete in me,
My mission,is to rest right here,
To trust You Lord,and not to fear,
To yield my will,that is my part,
As You consume,my willing heart,
To kiss the yoke,my will to give,
So small an act that in You,I might live.
