The Melody You gave to me sings in my heart today.
It is the Melody of Love that is Your only Way.
It is a Melody of Peace and Hope in times of fear.
A Melody that thrills my soul and tells me You are near.

Oh Lord, the Song rings in my heart and never leaves me lone.
It sings to me of Joys to come in Your own Heavenly Home.
It teaches me a Melody for this poor needy world
and gives me strength to sing its tune as winds of strife unfurl.

This Melody that is Your own arises in my heart
and urges me to be like You with every day’s new start.
When in my weakness I regress and sometimes lose my way,
Your Melody the sweeter grows to call me back to stay.

My greatest Joy is sharing here this Melody Supreme
and watching as it spreads afar in others’ Holy Dreams.
So with the very stars above I will Your Music raise
for You created me to be Your Melody of Praise!

Lovely. The way you capitalized key words is effective.

Perhaps the challenge topic was a little too much 'the star of the show' - a tad forced? But I'm only offering my own opinion to a master's writer where it is okay to be a little critical, right?

Good work. Great sentiments.

Liked your ending very much: "You created me to be Your Melody of Praise!" That left me with something to think about. :-)

Lovely word choices here and a nice flow. The last line was my favorite, too.

I enjoyed this poem. Simplistic detail. I got comfort from your second stanza and you did a good job with meter and rhyme. Blessings. :)

Beautifully written although I think the word "melody" was a bit overused. But, aside from that, it's wonderful! :)

I found myself singing this to the tune of the verses of "He Lives." ("I serve a risen Savior, He's in the world today....")
