I've Found Thee (Hymn Song)

by Mark   Oct 2, 2017


My heart beat's a faithful song
Once covered by my sin,
Hidden by darkness - buried within
'Twas then behold; thine light broke in
'Twas there in me all along.

(Chorus)
I've found thee, I've found thee
O my Lord - my soul to be;
In thy grace - thine warm embrace,
O my Lord - thou-st shine in me.

I've felt the sorrow and despair
In many a dark day
Swoon did I, to kneel and pray
Then lit a beacon, in me to stay,
You answered my Lord; my prayer.

I've found thee, I've found thee
O my Lord - my soul to be;
In thy grace - thine warm embrace,
O my Lord - thou-st shine in me.

Now I view thy splendorous light
In the essence of all I see
In a baby's eyes - a beggars' plea
A mourners' tears - a majestic tree
O Lord, thy light so bright

I've found thee, I've found thee
O my Lord - my soul to be;
In thy grace - thine warm embrace
O my Lord - thou-st shine in me.

Now I swim in thine river of love
Flowing with the currents of faith,
Living the words my Lord saith
No more I dwell in wraith
Unto thee; within and above.

(Chorus)

(Repeat Chorus, full choir)

    Excellent and heart felt! I like that the Light was there all along. Yet simply covered by a sin nature. This is exactly what happens when one recognizes the light! The scales of sin covering the spiritual eyes fall and the light is revealed. Deep stuff well done great write!!

    Mark, the very first thing I did after reading this, I added it to the favorites list.
    Mark, this is so beautiful and full of wonders.

    Now I view thy splendorous light
    In the essence of all I see
    In a baby's eyes - a beggars' plea
    A mourners' tears - a majestic tree
    O Lord thou light so bright.
