To be the beloved

To be the beloved 
By Joel Howard 

Be loved
Be cared for
Get washed
Get served
Let Christ
Let others
Be gift
To me

Be loved
Get fed
Have needs
Get met
Stop listening 
Pour out
To God
Your heart

Be seen
Be quiet
Be known
Be still
Have fun
Being known 
Being loved
Oh, Beloved!

Satan couldn’t stand to step aside
But you and I must in Jesus hide
Hear his voice saying deep inside 
Deep tonight: “I love you, child”
