May I Remain in You

You’ve sown in my heart
seeds of everlasting.
Love unrestrained
poured down upon my weary soul,
and washed away the earthly sediments.
You scorched the thorny bristles,
removed the deadly pestilence.

Let your light shine down.
Let the soil give way.
Call the roots forth.
That I may remain in you.
Grow, flourish, and
thrive in me.
Prune my unsightliness
until my righteousness springs forth.
Let the fruits of your labor
be beautiful, bountiful, and blessed.
May all who come under my canopy
find my foundation secure–
rooted, grounded, and established
in the sureness of your Love.
