‘You Who Were’ (a poem)

Have I forgotten who I once was?
Am I still acting through a heart filled with only self-love?
You who were dead, come to life
Am I ignoring other souls?
Am I withholding my affections from the only One who can make them whole?
You who were dead, come to life

You who were wrong
    turn to what is right
You who were lost
    rely on His sight
You who were too far gone
    be amazed and rest in His might
You who were…
