The Deep Calls unto the Deep 

by Bob Brown
 
“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls” ― Psalm 42:7a 
My cup, it steams with tea
My apartment is very still
The deep calls unto the deep
The depth, it is God’s will

 

My table is filled with books
My candle begins to glow
A beautiful quiet fills my kitchen
And inspiration begins to grow

 

My thoughts begin to lengthen
At the close of day
And outside my window
The sunset splits the grey

 

My peace begins to deepen
My tea is good to taste
And as I enter into solitude
I abandon my life of haste 

 

And since I’m seated above
I sense God’s inner powers
My tongue’s the pen of a skillful writer
These quiet, mystical hours

 

I labor with “His” energy
That powerfully works within
And after meditation and prayer
It’s time to now begin

 

In Christ, I am enriched
The tea, I savor to sip
And into the Living Waters
I now begin to dip

 

My God, He fills my mind
Just like the candle’s light
And as He fills my spirit
Again, I begin to write…

 

“In His presence is fullness of joy at His right hand there are pleasures forevermore”  – Psalm 16:11
