Come As You Are

You are welcome here,

When your arms are held high

When you’ve had enough or fall to your knees

If your voice is quiet or it shakes the walls.

This is a place for you.

If you feel called or just feel lost

If you are full of questions or stand in truth

You are welcome here.

You may stand and proclaim with your voice

You may fall and surrender with your tears

You may sit and ponder with your thoughts

You may just listen

No matter, you are welcome here.

So come as you are,

Come and be met with love

You are welcome here.
