You Are…

You are my Glory and my Hope
Perfect in all Your ways
You are the One in Whom I rest
You are my Hope and Stay

You are my Wisdom and my Rock
The Blesser of my soul
The Hearer of my painful cries
You’re holy and faithful

You are the One in whom I trust
The Strength’ner of my heart
You are my Shield and Protection
You’ll never more depart

You uphold all your righteous ones
You are my Hiding Place
You are the One Who gives me food
My Light, my Truth, my Grace

You are Alpha and Omega
You are the First and Last
When You come back to take me home
My sin will all be past.

Words by Violet Escalera – January 2017
(Can be sung to the tune of Amazing Grace)

  1. This reminds me of something I wrote years ago…

    This is My Church

    It is composed of people just like me.

    It will be friendly, if I am friendly.

    It will do great work, if I will work.

    It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am generous.

    It will bring others to Christ, if I will bring them.

    Its seats will be filled, if I will fill them.

    Therefore, with God’s help, I dedicate myself to the task of being all that I want my church to be.
