Sara's Book

The Book of Sara by hineni ~ ~ Chapter 1 No words can express completely My love for you Only the Lord Can finish my heart ~ ~ Chapter 2 Even my song And even my hands Fail me in my endeavors And if you were to approach me I would throw my life into the fire ~ ~ Chapter 3 My works are crushed by your life And rightly so For every fruit that falls from my branches Are cast into a deep chasm And swallowed by my brokenness Into everlasting sorrow ~ ~ Chapter 4 Had I not already plunged into my own sword My blood would still not be enough Even as it coursed through my body ~ ~ Chapter 5 So I give you my broken arms And my broken legs My ribs are crushed within me As I gasp for precious life ~ ~ Chapter 6 I was asked to follow the Lord And he took me to places Filled with terror And filled with doom And I was stalwart as I was transfixed ~ ~ Chapter 7 In spite of all these things I love you And my heart bleeds daily As my poverty besieges me With every passing moment ~ ~ Amen
