that I thought would bring me God

did not bring God to me

mans attempt at easy glory failing

yet again


He is not to be found in books

though loud they proclaim His Name,

His awesomeness on every page inscribed,

and the beating heart goes beating faster

at the reading of the words

no book on earth could contain this God

no word His magnificence completely show

He whom we would find through foreign means

stands knocking at our heart


That I Thought Would Bring Me God
