“Benediction”

Benediction (Tim Melton, May 2011)

I will Bless you, I will
We can do this easy,
Or we can do this hard
Either way, I will Bless you, and Keep you, and I will make my face to shine upon you

If you come unto me,
I will wash you and dress you,
I will hug you and kiss you,
I will put a ring on your finger
and I will wrap you in a fine, white Robe of linen,
For I will bless you. I will
I will Bless you, and Keep you, and I will make my face to shine upon you

If you should leave me, I will come after you
and If you try to run from me, I will tackle you
and I will break your legs, so that you are unable to walk

For, I will Bless you, and Keep you, and I will make my face to shine upon you
and If you should try to crawl away from me,
I will break your arms and I’ll wrap my arms around you
And throw you around my neck, and carry you where you have no wish to go
For, I will Bless you, and Keep you, and I will make my face to shine upon you

And if you struggle against my grip of loving grace
I will break your stiff-necked pride and lift your chin to see my face
For I will Bless you
And If you curse me and revile me,
I will overwhelm you with singing
and I will Bless you

If your heart should despise me
I will melt that heart of stone with the Cross, with my grace, with my heavenly tears
I will Bless you, and Keep you, and I will make my face to shine upon you and give you peace

Hear me.  Listen to me.
We can do this easy,
or we can do this hard
But know this truly –

I will Bless you
I will Bless you
I will Bless you, and Keep you, and I will make my face to shine upon you
For you are mine
So,

“May the LORD bless you and keep you,
May He make His face to shine radiantly upon you and be gracious to you
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”
Numbers 6:24-26
