Racehorse

Racehorse

Something
Someone
caught my eye
hooked my interest
ensnared my heart

I feel Your restraint
on me
I sense Your restraint
on him

waiting like racehorses
at the gate
snorting, stomping
chomping at the bit
Your bit
we’re under Your yoke

Abba
I’m so sorry
Abba
I’m so sorry I wasn’t better
wasn’t braver
didn’t protect my heart
didn’t protect my purity
didn’t safeguard my soul

All my treasure I gave away
cast before swine
squandered on the roadside

I don’t have my gift
to give to him
the him you choose
for me

I rushed love
I wasted love
I lost love
who can find it?

I love You
only You
I need You.
I know You.
I know Your plans for me.
I know Your heart for me.
I know the alternative.
I know I’m safe with You.

So I wait at the gate
I keep my eyes on You
Abba

I don’t want
to want
or even think of
what You don’t have for me
