Our (un)Holy Worship

I close my eyes
readying my gaze to the heavens
in pious wonder
raptured by your drawing presence
with hands lifted up in praise
and mouth uttering worship

This is how I show you I love you
The Lord who redeems my soul

I close my eyes
denying my gaze on earth
in pious boredom
raptured by my own interpretation of presence
with hands lifted up in dishonor
and mouth uttering disgust

I say I love you Lord
but I have no thought about loving your creation

I guess for me its just
God love me and you and
does not give a d@#m
about what he said is good
or the fact that he called us humans
to be rulers of his created order

Well we more or less see being rulers
in the image we perceive as right
and forget the image we are supposed to receive
We are made in fact in God’s image
to live out his rule and not our own

and so

I close my eyes
readying my gaze to the heavens
in pious wonder
raptured by your drawing presence
with hands lifted up in praise
and mouth uttering worship

This is how I show you I love you
The Lord who redeems my soul

I close my eyes
denying my gaze on earth
in pious boredom
raptured by my own interpretation of presence
with hands lifted up in dishonor
and mouth uttering disgust

I say I love you Lord
but I have no thought about loving your creation
