you simplify my complexity with a melody
and unravel my fears with songs.

you assay, with laughter, my anxiety
and by faith make blunt all thongs.

when I dangle on a looping dirge
you caress, with grace, my fainting soul

your promises are no mirage
therefore unashamed I hinge my hope

on every line, verse, jot, tittle
written in your timeless book of truth

and when I wander away in wanderlust
I shall lean, again, in your direction

you’re the melody of unfailing love
you’re my song, Jesus
