Wishes & Promises



I wish my name was grace
So I could pardon all transgressions of man
Big and small
Including for those whom I suffered

I wish my name was mercy
So those tears I weep can heal, and restore
Including for those whom I suffered

I wish my name was wisdom
So I can end all false accusations
Raging tempest
Including for those whom I suffered

I wish my name was love
So I can resolve all differences
Melt their hearts, turn the world around
Including for those whom I suffered

I wish I am
But I am not
My name is not God
And I cannot

That is why I can only hope in the one who can,
Jesus - Whose name is love, wisdom, mercy, grace and so much more

What I cannot do, he already did
He suffered the transgression of men, both big and small
He wept for those who pain and healed and restored
He took all false accusations, raging temper
Hearts that were broken, lives that are torn

There are no wishes I can keep
Only promises I can hold
Jesus, he promised to redeem from hands too strong
A song to sing out loud,
Because of the goodness of the Lord, we will be radiant
Over the grain, the wine, the oil, over material and physical wealth,
Our lives will be like watered garden
He will give joy instead of mourning
Exchanging comfort and gladness for sorrow
His servant leaders their fill and people satisfied with his provision.
[Jer 31:10]

You should put music to the first four verses of this poem. Not that its not complete without music, it's just that it'll make it 'explosive'. I like it very much.. Keep writing ya!
