Lifted and Lifting [Republished]

Welcome to Day 4 of Chapter 4 from Arise & Shine’s Part 7. Today, Anna is bringing forward our fourth free will offering of The Hidden Manna in Christ Revealed.

Lifted and Lifting 

I thought the piercing
Was my God's spurning
The sword of truth
From my lips
The Son of God's interceding
Life to death ceding.

But now, I know
The double-edged sword
Is but our double portion reaping
Christ's weeping, bearing seed
For the sowing, I AM coming home
With shouts of joy 'n sheaves of gold.

Christ's yielding to the Father's
Good and perfect will
Resurrection in death birthing
In a holy overshadowing
The veil from His Bride
The Bridegroom's lifting.

Hidden in Christ
I AM in wonder and awe
To new life awaking
The hidden manna now
A lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.

In the fountain of grace glowing
I AM living water ever flowing
In truth and grace
Compassion's kissing
I AM my Beloved's
And my Beloved is mine.

No longer divided
I know my heart's wholly
In Christ's blood united
I AM the broken bread
In thanksgiving to the Father
Lifted and lifting.
