just.

Lord:

We do not just ask You
to be here in this place tonight
we need You to bust down the doors
break down these Berlin walls
until every continent vibrates
with shouts of wonder

we do not just want to praise You
we worship mars and aphrodite
with Your name on our lips
we need You to burn them off
with the coals of the offering You offered

what i mean is
we repent
of all the times we
try to contain You
with phrases that
might have meant something
to our fathers and mothers
but they are not ours anymore

because You are Word
with no entry in the dictionary
it would take a million tomes
to define You
