Empty womb, empty rooms,
Empty nest, Empty chest,
Empty moments, empty closeness,
All this emptiness I tried to fill.
All this emptiness I tried to kill.
All this emptiness I tried to will
With all this emptiness I tried to just be still.
I thought He would chase away the empty places,
I thought eventually He would fill the empty places with all the faces,
I thought I would eventually win His good graces
I thought I had covered all my bases.
Turns out all this trying I did
Turns out all this thinking I did,
Turns out all this emptiness was filled with me
Turns out all this emptiness was meant to be
Filled with the limitless God.
Drive me out of all the places.
Break all the mirrors where only my face is.
Make room again.
Make me empty and barren
Until all my emptiness is filled completely to the brim with You.
Let the train of Your robe fill me.
Let all of you consume all my emptiness.
The emptier I am
The more of You I get.
