Recover Me

Recover me
My joy
My peace
My chosenness
My belovedness
In my mess
In my distress
Recover me

You are my beloved
God says
You are my treasured possession
God says
You are a called-out one and sent-in one to a land of desperation
God says

You are my royal priesthood
God tells us
You are my holy nation
God tells us
You are members of my household in a land of desolation
God tells us

Recover me
No, recover us
It’s not the Church of me
It’s the Church of God
A community.
It’s not just me.
