HE HIDES US FROM THE WORLD  


 
Photobucket

Battle weary from life's blows,
So emotionally unstable,
We crawl into that secret place
To sit at our Lord's table.

Photobucket

"Forgive me, Father, I have failed..."
We let our faults and fears unfurl.
"Rest easy, child"...He covers us...
"Let Me hide you from the world."

Photobucket

A Voice of comfort...Voice of hope...
A Voice diminishing all doubt.
Sometimes we sheep can lose our way
But the Sheperd seeks us out.

Photobucket

There is no ocean deep enough...
No mountain top too high...
No place on earth where we'll escape
From our Lord's all seeing eye.

Photobucket

He'll gently draw us back to God...
Tend to our cuts and bruises.
We must allow Him to avenge
Us anyway He chooses.

Photobucket

He understands our sense of shame
As the storm within us rages.
The world may throw its many stones
But He's the Rock of Ages!

Photobucket

Like a sparrow with a broken wing,
We come crashing to the ground.
But eagles are we meant to be
So we can't remain earth bound.

Photobucket

We must rise above the darkened skies..
Above the thunder humans hurl...
And smile into the face of God
While He hides us from the world.

Lovingly Presented,
