My Soul Calls Out

By Kaitlan Bui '22

I am so distant from You, Lord,

But solely You I look toward.

My soul calls out Your precious name

Because I’m broken, blind, and lame. John 5:3, 2 Cor. 4:8

And I know that I have been living

Recently without thanksgiving,

Just shuffling around my mind–

But Christ turned water into wine! John 2:9

So, God, I desperately pray

You’d change my heart in the same way, Psalm 51:10

That scales would fall out of my eyes, Acts 9:18

That even when the sun doth rise, Matthew 5:45

And even when the rainfall starts,

I would remember in my heart

That I have always been Your child, 1 John 3:1

That You prevail e’en in the wild, Isaiah 43:19

That now my life is sacrifice Romans 12:1

And I can’t live under a guise--

But bursting forth from fire and flame, Daniel 3: 26-27

Living each day to praise Your name.

So take me from my world within Romans 14:8

And give me strength to now begin

A life that holds the joy of You,

The love, peace, patience, kindness too. Galatians 5:22-23

For You have said, “Abide in Me; John 15:7

I am the Vine, you are the leaves.” John 15:4
