Poem

The Perfect Ending

Michael Beck Michael Beck

I yearn much more to know You, much more to be like You
This is my deepest reason for wanting days not few
The prize that I seek after is just to know Your Name
To see You in Your glory, be changed into the same
The life You set around me is very fertile ground
To grow into Your image and have Your fruit abound
Each day’s a new adventure to see Your wondrous grace
Discover heaven’s treasure while running in this race
O Lord You know my hunger, my times are in Your hand
All that you’ve purposed for me is Yours to understand
This only is my heart’s cry, this only is my plea
That I would cross the finish, when Christ is formed in me
