Dwelling Within

From John 14:10-11:  “Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does His works.  Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves.”

Lord’s tree of life, saving us

Son of Man, bearing our flesh

Each morning, rising with us

Faith, hope, and love shall refresh

 

In His death, life be reborn

Like faithful rivers, love flows

Christ’s awesome mystery breathes

From darkened tomb, Jesus rose

 

Heavenly truth speaks, let’s hear

Love transforms through acts and words

Both mirror journey of Christ

His message, no longer blurred

 

Christ leading, we will follow

Always near, dwelling within

His hand steadies stumbling steps

Salvation forgiving sin

Much of this poem is inspired by the hymn “Tree of Life and Awesome Mystery,” which is part of a morning devotional I regularly read and study.
