The Shadow

I was going through a darkness,
A darkness so thick, it was so hard to see
I could not see my face, I did not even know me
But then there was another darkness
That was quiet and warm and awesome and firm
And it completely drowned out the other, a mist of passionate dew
And then I felt the feathers and then and there I knew
It was the shadow of the Most High

I was walking through the wilderness
Nothing but the wild beasts and the dark ones
Waiting for their opportunity to pounce
I then felt goodness with every ounce
And the fear of nothing but the Lord came upon me
It was the shadow of the Most High

I came upon one with cancer
One with affliction, heartache and disease
I felt the oppression laughing
Thinking it could do whatever it pleased
And then I heard it shriek, I saw it vanish,
And I watched it melt before my eyes
My heart by the Presence was mesmerized
It was the shadow of the Most High

So you may be walking through a darkness
Where suddenly it seems darker still
But don’t be discouraged just open your heart
And trust Him, just trust Him until
You can sense Him too, knowing whatever you do
You are covered, protected, and warmed
By the shadow of the Most High

It’s the brightest place on earth…

I am waiting for the roar of the water
I am waiting for the form and the flow
I am waiting for someone to tell me that I am alive
I’m waiting for the One I’m to know

I hear stories of past jubilations
I hear rumors that the Lion’s on the move
I hear of dead people raised up in a heartbeat
When their heart discovered the Source of all love

I still wait for the roar of the water
My heart feels now as if it will explode
I long for the face of the Glorious One
The One I am created to know

I want to live in His dream of my story
I want to ride as I hold on to the mane
I long to feel the pound of His hearbeat
Knowing that no moment is ever the same

I sit here and stare out this window
The same window I look out every day
And wait to hear, to see, to feel, to know
The One that I long for and pray
I hear Him running…
