Poem of Your Life

October 12, 2011

The Bible tells us that each of our lives tell a story.  We are like masterpieces of God’s artistry.  The greek word is poiema, from which we get our English word “poem”. 

In this video Phil Keaggy joins Michael Card to play Poem of Your Life, a Celtic-ish piece from Card’ album Poiema.

Life is a song we must sing with our days/A poem with meaning more than words can say/A painting with colors no rainbow can tell/A lyric that rhymes either heaven or hell

We are living letters that doubt desecrates/We’re the notes of the song of the chorus of faith/God shapes every second of our little lives/And minds every minute as the universe waits by

CHORUS:  The pain and the longing/The joy and the moments of light/Are the rhythm and rhyme/The free verse of the poem of life

So look in the mirror and pray for the grace/To tear off the mask, see the art of your face/Open your ear lids to hear the sweet song/Of each moment that passes and pray to prolong

Your time in the ball of the dance of your days/Your canvas of colors of moments ablaze/With all that is holy/With the joy and the strife/With the rhythm and rhyme of the poem of your life/With the rhythm and rhyme of the poem of your life
