Pleas(e) 150 150 Julia Putzke

Love broke through
the valley–all closed
doors swung wide to
my portion & my strength;
Oh Jesus, you are here!
Please never let your smile
leave me sunk in this place,
for I have withered & songs
of deliverance hesitantly leave
my lips. Love never fails, you whisper to me & I know the
only hope I’ve had is you. To
take my broken & create something surpassing shame,
as sure as the sun rises you never
forget my name, the promise you made: I will restore all the locusts
have eaten. The night song I sing always leads to day, I am the dawn; marvelous light never
walking away.

& still I plead:
Lord, I want to be
