Happy in My Dust – v2

Going forward
to receive my ashes
humble in my spirit
but feeling your love

Happy in my dust
contemplating my past
knowing you are with me
in the stormy blast

Taking on my sin
my stain upon you
redeeming me by your blood
changing my life in you

Able to stand, alive
only because of your grace
able to stand before God
to see his heavenly face

Needing you with me
to rise above my dust
to walk in your light
carrying Christ into the world
making the darkness bright

“Michelle and I join with millions of Christians
here and across the world to mark Ash Wednesday.
As we observe the season of Lent, we receive
with thanksgiving this opportunity for grace and repentance,
recommit ourselves to our faith, and
remember our obligations to one another.”!/barackobama/posts/10150107573326749
