Rick Swartzentrover














Here I sit in church


Why? – I know not!


I feel like I’m under a microscope
  God is at the eyepiece
The microscope is very powerful
  It doesn’t focus on me but rather on my heart


What does he see?


A house that is very lonely
  For the master is not yet at home
He is coming up the driveway
  But he is stopped by a locked gate


Why do I lock it? I know not!


If only I had time to think
  But then I’d just waste it
Lord help me to open the gate
  And let you into your house


Where is the key?


You alone can open the gate
  Because, you are the only key
Please open the gate
  And come into your lonely house
