The Artist’s Tattoo

You have promised:
“I will write my law on their hearts”
Removing stone etchings
And writing on flesh

Indelible script
Does not come without suffering
The promise of Your Word
Burned into my being

Permanently marked by love
The artist’s tattoo penned interiorly
Willfully on the organ which pumps life
Every stinging needle prick for love of You

I feel but cannot see
What is internally written
Yet I know I must love
Outwardly within Your Word

For You
For others
In Your name
And in Your glory
