Says The Lord

Says the Lord who made and formed you, “Do not fear you’ve been redeemed. 

By your name I’ve called and claimed you, not just ‘then’ but for all time. 


Waters, rivers, you will pass through but will not be overwhelmed.

Blaze and flame cannot consume you, even that which burns in hell.


I have saved you, bought you out of bondage so that you may live.

You are precious and I love you. There is naught I wouldn’t give. 


Where you scatter I will find you, seeking east, west, south and north.

Gather all whom I’ve created, for my glory I have formed.”
