jackson swingIn a slumbering, snoring world, always far away in some other place…
Dreaming of another time like tomorrow or yesterday…
Can you be the one who stays awake
To the rhythms and breathing of the here and now?
Could you stay here in this moment?
Could you rest here in His love?

In a tenacious, tight-fisted tribe of self will run riot…
Demanding life on its own terms as if it were theirs to demand…
Can you be the one who joyfully lets go
And surrenders to the sweetness of His way and truth?
Could you stay here in this moment?
Could you rest here in His love?

Oh what a treasure to be so aware
Of His gaze
Of His nearness
Of His smile
Of His care.
And oh what a pleasure to touch such a heart
And stay here and rest in this moment.

In a disposable, decaying world, where time flies and love flies faster…
Always in search of a shinier, sexier object of desire…
Can you be the one who holds on to the timeless
And anchors your soul in the language of forever?
Could you stay here in this moment?
Could you rest here in His love?

In a cold planet of isolated hearts and faraway visions…
Where hopes always flee the scene for something different…
Can you be the one who holds onto the precious
And treasures the closeness of joys at your side?
Could you stay here in this moment?
Could you rest here in His love?

Oh what a treasure to be so aware
Of His gaze
Of His nearness
Of His smile
Of His care.
And oh what a pleasure to touch such a heart
And stay here and rest in this moment.

So don’t close your eyes, don’t miss what He’s offering.
Don’t miss one sweet gift as His prized work of art
Receive from the love that holds on to forever
Stay here in the nearness, alive to His heart!

Oh what a treasure to be so aware
Of His gaze
Of His nearness
Of His smile
Of His care.
And oh what a pleasure to touch such a heart
And stay here and rest in this moment.

Just as little children live perfectly in the moment, so should we . . .
Beautiful poem, Andy!
