Let me be Your Echo, Lord
Let me hear your will.
I failed to hear your whisper,
but your shout rings loudly still.
Saying – “Here I Am. Have no doubts.
It is I, the One you have known from the beginning.
Have you forgotten the sound of my voice?
How soon you forget. Hold on tight. Listen to my song.
You’re weak. Come dance with me. For I Am very strong.”
Your song, Lord is so wondrous and overwhelming.
Keep singing, and please don’t stop.
It brings joy to my weary heart.
Give me the voice to call back to you from my mountaintop.
Let me send forth your word like a resounding drum.
A sound that is pure and powerful and travels far from the place it starts.
To be heard by all who are there to listen,
To touch their searching hearts.
Let your word be carried by the wind of your Holy Spirit
Rushing swiftly through the sky
A strong wind which has the strength of your solid arms
That picked me up and carried me when you heard my cry.
Lord, Let me be your echo.
An echo that will join the chorus of voices that are bringing the sound of Your Hope
Across the skies, through the deep valleys,
From mountain to mountain, and to the deserts
To your people who are in desperate need of a familiar voice,
One who cares, One who Has Been there, and always Will Be.

“Here I Am. I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him and he with me.”
Come, Lord Jesus. I hear and recognize your voice. You are welcomed with open arms into my heart.
