Israelite

And who am I?
Nothing but an Israelite?
Forgetting You
despite Your glory.
Forgetting You
despite Your love for me.

And what have I done?
Made idols of what is seen?
And I wonder why there's
a lack of faith
for the unseen.
And I wonder why there's
a lack of peace
as they drown me.

Shower me with Your mercy.
Shower me with Your promise.

I don't deserve all of You.
You deserve all of me.
