Be the One

How did you come by
That name?
How did you arrive
In that tortured frame?

Ask me now,
What do I think?
Be all that is possible,
But the kitchen sink.

Be the one.
Be with me.
Be the chosen.
Be lovely.

Are you my friend,
Or my enemy?
Are you my brother?
Can’t you see?

I want to be
What you need me to be.
I want to give to you
Completely, freely.

Be to me
What I need you to be.
Be my only.
Bend your knee.

I love you
Despite the loss.
You are mine
No matter what it costs.

Come with me
To salvation.
We will make
A powerful nation.

Let’s move
The mountains now.
Let’s make
A sacred vow.

We will break
Through the stone.
You will never
Be alone.
