Sweep – Décima

Breathe over me. I want to hear
Your saving Words. With hyssop sweep
my heart so endless joy I’ll keep.
Your Holy Spirit’s ever near.

I humbly bend my listening ear
obeying what You have to say.
I praise You through the end of day
inhaling Spirit with each breath
in gratitude till at my death
the path to You leads where I’ll stay.


Ronovan Hester offers the rhyme word “sweep” to be used in a B rhyme of a décima having rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC for this week’s challenge. I am thinking of Psalm 51.
