By Eve S Thornton, 2013.

I have read and written poetry since I was a young girl.  Love for my Savior and interest in poetry began in a small country church while singing and listening to the rhythm and cadence of the words to those wonderful old gospel hymns which gave me much joy then, and still do. Above all other things, what gives me the most joy in my life, the most peace, the most total completeness is that I am a child of the Living God. My hope is that my poetry magnifies the faithfulness and love of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I feel truly blessed to have been a wife, mother, grandmother and servant of God through salvation in Jesus Christ my Lord. I pray that my offering to Him through this seemingly innocuous form of communication called poetry will always lift His Name above all other names. May God bless each of us in this pursuit.

Come closer child, come closer still
Don’t stand so far away.
Release the burden that you hold
Give it to Me today.

Come closer child, in prayer release
your burdens, that you may have peace.
 

There is no sin I can’t forgive
I see them all, you know.
Confess each one to Me my child
That I may help you grow.

Come closer child, in prayer release
your burdens, that you may have peace.
 

I know that you are hurting now
I know you through and through.
You think I cannot feel your pain
I tell you that I do.

Come closer child, in prayer release
your burdens, that you may have peace.
