I sit and fight the morning chill
where the tree was on this hill
Its been quiet here for years
since the day your blood was spilled

Afraid to look You in the eye;
at the pain so deep inside
Afraid youll say I've fallen
one too many times

But you taught me how to pray
when I can't find the words to say
You catch me when I'm falling
and I fall into Your Grace.

In every word You say.
Every promise that You made
In every single time
you took me dancing in the rain

Now my heart is quiet and still
in the space I left unfilled.
let Your Spirit take His place;
its why i'm waiting on this hill
for every,
every word you say.

I know You hope that I
would stop reaching for the lie
and hold tightly to the peace
I keep finding in Your eyes.

I'm just glad you understand
that I'm a simple man
I can't do it all alone
But in You I know I can.

In between the mountains,
when You feel so far away;
remind me of your pardon;
let me rest for mercy's sake

In every word you say,
every promise that you made,
come true on this old hill;
this bloody ground where I stand.

I'm finding every single moment
I need You just to breathe.
I need Your Spirit to believe
in the love You came to be;

in every word you say to me.

Welcome to Passions in Poetry!

Your first post is beautiful, it stems from your heart and it is uplifting, as your deep trust in Him is powerfully conveyed.

So well you've expressed the humbling knowledge of Who HE really is, and what helpless sinners we are.

Thank you for sharing your talent here.

God bless,
  Rae
