Out of the Wilderness – 11″ x 14″ lithograph
In an instant the world changed forever,
With a sudden unrestrained tempest blast.
A sound from Heaven, as a rushing wind,
When Holy Spirit changed forever the past.
Filling all who awaited on Pentecost Day,
Those drunk with the Spirit’s new wine.
Distributed too were tongues of fire,
Reflecting God’s Glory divine.
The Lord seeks a people after His heart,
Infilled now as deep calls to deep.
If we yield to His Spirit within us,
Dominion and power we’ll reap.
For in God’s presence is fullness of joy.
We’re created for worship and praise.
All of our senses awakened by Him,
Bring hearts rich with passion ablaze.
For the Lord alone arouses desire
In the heart of His pure spotless bride.
He leads her out of the wilderness
To the place where with Him she’ll abide.
