Spring worship unto Thee

O Lord, when my heart is cold and hard, teach me to sing. Root Thy praises deep within 'til all is at rest and Your love abounds!

Oh refuge of my hardened heart
Oh fast pursuing lover come
As angels dance 'round Your throne
My life by captured fare You own

Not silhouette of trodden faith
Nor death shall not my steps be guide
I'll pirouette upon mine grave
For in Your path I'll run and hide

Oh gaze of love so melt my pride
That I may in Your house but kneel
And in my brokenness to cry
Spring worship unto Thee

When beauty breaks the spell of pain
The bludgeoned heart shall burst in vain
But not when love be pointed king
And truth shall Thee forever reign

Sweet Jesus carry me away
From cold of night, and dust of day
In ragged hour or salt worn eye
Be my desire, my well sprung lye

Spring worship unto Thee
Spring worship unto Thee

~ Jars of Clay, Hymn

Hi Erika!

How are you doing? I miss you on Facebook! I was going to ask, how did you like Ellerlie? I'm praying about possibly going next Summer.

I love these lyrics and the song! So beautiful....

Hope you're doing well!
