A new day dawning
His blue hues
His misty morning
Covering the window
Of my sleepy hollow
Where fear and lies deeply burrow
What once was clear
Now encrusted … is He still near?
Why can’t I see
The eyes who made me?
When will the shards,
The lonely cold heart
Release the vault
Of hidden tears
Unearth all shame-ridden years
You gave me ice, Lord?
And You, You paid the ultimate price
Why is living so incredibly challenging?
With all the suffering?
After my heart’s torment
My cries and lament
The light of the Messiah
Appears as if it is beyond my crystal cave
His touch of forgiveness comes upon my self-made grave
All for His glory
Pain trickles away from my story
I rise up
Because He lives and does not stop
Of His messy people
Questioning Him, ever afraid
I heal, I breathe
Into every crevice
I alone can save
Any and all from death’s name
I am here
Forever, each moment of every year
My love for you abounds
Every mountain, valley
So all my sheep are found
Here, let me wipe
Chip away every loss
Some things pass
New power surpasses
Human might and thought
For in all life, I shower living water on every drought, or frozen knot, or trouble caught.
My Kingdom reigns
Over and over and over again
He sends His commands to the earth;
His word runs swiftly
He spreads the snow like wool
and scatters the frost like ashes.
He hurls down His hail like pebbles.
Who can withstand His icy blast?
He sends His word and melts them;
He stirs up breezes, and the waters flow (Psalm 147:15-18).
