I met you on a pew
one Valentine’s Day .
From saying I never knew you .
Never trusted or cared to .
I came to the back pew
one Valentines Day .
Preachers teachers and offering keepers
Tried to tell me about you.
Tried to tell me to like you.
But they did not know you .
You were on the back pew
Waiting for me on Valentine’s Day
I saw you In the splinters of that pew
on Valentine’s Day
I saw and I knew that you were beautiful
and I saw and knew that you were marred
I saw and knew that you were flawless
and I saw and knew that you were scarred
The rays of your ways warmed the pew
On Valentine’s Day.
No guile no malice , nor covet or con
But you took these sins and said “ be gone “
And soaked me with sweet words of grace
Til every cell Gave you a place
So I could be pure and divine
As you have made me truly thine.
I will live each day as your Valentine!
