Unrelenting


Piece by piece You take them
Both my heart and my burden
You won’t give up
Until I hand it all over

Relentlessly You chase me
You want to win me completely
I must give You control
Surrender everything

Your love is all consuming
I have ravished You
You are my Beloved, my bridegroom
And You will pursue me always

Your eyes are unwavering
Intently You watch me with love
You desire my all
My total attention

Forever You will wait
Until all things pass away
You will call out to my soul
Your love is unrelenting

Composition Date: October 10th, 2010

Holli’s Notes:
This poem was born out of the song from Misty Edwards called “You Won’t Relent”.
