Trespasser

Accidentally found you
(Found by you)
Not the places or ways
I was directed
Instructed
Time, time, time again

Hidden
I could not see you
Stumbling about
A trespasser, really

Not my place
Not my harvest
I never could produce a thing
Exhausted, lost
Hungry for the truth

Give myself away
To have you
(Be had by you)
Hidden treasure
Found by a mere trespasser

Say the right words
Direct all the people
This way and that
Yes
I know how it’s done

Still stumbling, still lost
Heart empty
Back aching
Carrying the burden my proof

This place of plenty
Bright lights
Promises
Don’t fill my need
Crumbs offered as a feast

Accidentally I found you
So far from where I started
Roaming trespasser
In a place I did not know

Raise my hands!
Raise my heart!
Raise everything I own!

Cast into the winds
Give it all away
Surrender everything I am
If it means that I can stay

Accidentally I found you
Hidden for so long
Far from where I started
It is here I make my home

I could not breathe without you
And yet I didn’t even know
In all my striving, desperate trying
I simply dug myself a hole
No well read script or duty
Ever brought me proof
It was in my stumbling
–A Trespasser–
I found treasure knowing you

“God’s kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field for years and then accidentally found by a trespasser. The finder is ecstatic — what a find! — and proceeds to sell everything he owns to raise money and buy that field.” –Matthew 13:44, the message

“There is far more at stake here than religion.” –Matthew 12:6, the message
