I Owe You

Posted in Poetry at 9:05 pm by tclickenger

I owe you,

For the things you now have done

I owe you,

For the vict’ry that you won.

You gave life,

Made it free for everyone.

Lasting life,

I can now be classed a son.

Blessed King,

Make me worthy of your name.

Holy King,

Take away all earthly shame.

Make me whole,

Wholly Holy in thy will.

Fully whole,

Make it something I can feel.

Take my praise,

I now give it from my heart.

Simple praise,

Let it be an early start.

To repay

For things I know you’ve done.

For no pay

Since you came here as the Son.

I owe you,

Without a chance to repay.

I know You

Still can hear me when I say,

“I love you,

Help me try to do my best

To give you,

All my will which I arrest.”
