Between the Marrow and the Bone


Conviction comes to devastate
The place where fear and doubting wait
To convince us of the seeds we've sown
The truth is found and is made known
It dwells between the marrow and the bone

Gods Word can pierce us quick and clean
Cutting through the seen and unseen.
So sharp it cleaves the heart of stone
This two edged sword is finely honed
To rend apart the marrow and the bone

The word of God pierces deep enough
To show the truth of all our thoughts
And our selves and motives
Where the battle of the mind is fought.
It judges our intentions
Where soul and spirit coalesce
The harbors of the heart run deep
As the deceits we must confess

Where the spirit and the soul and divide
Truth is revealed and so can guide
Until in Christ we are full grown.
Gods Word will speak to living stones
It separates the marrow and the bone

Hebrews 4:12; Eph 4:13; 1 Peter 2:5
