The greatest calling
Last night I dreamed I went to You
to see what You would have me do,
and as I stood there in Your sight,
I was awestruck by Your splendid might.
I realized then what I did not know,
that You did not need me to bend the bow,
to defend Your honour and Your Name
to those who brought it discredit and shame.
I thought You’d need me to say something,
to let the heavens with praises ring,
but again I seemed to get it wrong,
for the angels were already singing that song.
I then looked down at my hands and feet,
to look for something there You might need,
but You smiled and only shook Your head,
dismissing me to return to bed.
I did not want to let it go,
promptly insisting on letting You know
that I had worth that I could bring to You,
that there was loads that I could do.
You smiled and told me to get some rest,
that You knew I always gave You my best.
You then bent down to find my ear,
whispering something I desperately needed to hear.
You did not need my words or deeds
to fill man’s seemingly bottomless needs;
You created me to be loved by You,
and to love You back was the best I could do.
