I am looking, looking, looking, looking
Mostly down into the chasm that
I see as black with my own failure.
I am weary, oh so weary
and look for the light.
You sweet and full of grace
Smile with the light of your face
full of compassion and I can
feel your presence before I see
With gentle Spirit fingers you
lift my head
and beckon me to look, look, look, again
Across the chasm to the other side.
There is a heaven so real that it
cannot be denied.
And as you lead the way to what
can only be called a cosmic JUMP
you ask me to look again.
At your nail scarred hands
Your feet too
To know that this is but the
surface of an infinite suffering
the depths of darkness’ chasm
you fell into…you chose
to surrender unto
that there would never again be
a black night
that could not be
refined with the shards of
a victorious Savior’s light.
You want me to behold you
To know that You have gone
before all of this that wants to speak
of darkness’ final say…
Your power is redemptive and it is
calling out to the whole world
will I jump into the arms that will
carry me and make me a part of
what only you can do??
