And the Wind Carries Your Name

Like foam on the waves I was tossed and turned, and I burned;
Like some tagalong vagabond wandering from mighty Babylon;
Like some drifter spread about the earth by a cosmic sifter…

And the wind carries Your name and spreads Your fame.

Oh how can it be that I was so utterly lost but now I see?
And how is it that I was even dead but now I’ve been fed?
Oh how can it be that You, You loved even the likes of me?

And the wind carries Your name and spreads Your fame.

Here now, finally, there is no blame nor is there any shame;
Here now, at last, I rest me in Your arms safe from all harm;
Here now there is nothing to darken as I harken to Your call.

And the wind carries Your name and spreads Your fame.

Yeah, I hear Your gentle Voice and all of my fear disappears;
Yeah, I see Your strong hand guiding the wandering band;
Yeah, I sense Your Presence in luminescence of my new life.

And the wind carries Your name and spreads Your fame.

And the wind carries Your name and spreads Your fame.

  1. Another brilliant piece, Jon! Marvellously done.
    The love in you is shining like the sun that comes back with all its might after a dark storm. Never fret, my dear how lost you were. Rejoice that you have been found. Even when you had turned your back and you couldn’t see, it was he who carried you ashore. The answer is always blowing in the wind, even when the wind seems to be still and not blowing. You know what I mean?

    The repitition is almost like a self affirmation and works wonderfully. A great reminder and a note not jidt to yourself but to all of us who believe in him and his mysterious ways. That, help is always given when the seeker surrenders. Give him all your troubles, let him take care of you.

    You’ll probably get tired of hearing this from me probably but my dearest friend Jon, your poems touch me deep always. And i don’t know if I’ve told you this before, I absolutely love your unique style. No wonder you are my Lord of Lyricism. And I your humble friend and spirit keeper? Lol.
    P.S. I’m not even going to bother this time telling you about the duality in your poem. Ha ! 🙂 Happiness is just round the corner. Reach out! Always wishing you the best.

    1. Thank you once again, dear Nans! You always lift my spirits and, yes, He rescued me from the wind and the waves and brought me ashore again… And how thankful I am! Thank you, my dear friend and, as always, blessings to you!
