Show me your face,
So that I may know you!
Take me by the hand,
For walking alone I can not.
Take me into your blossom,
For your embrace is what I yearn for.
Whisper to me in your tongue,
For your voice is all I need.
Down the valley of death I may have walked,
In the desert of uppity too I have been!
Up and down in life’s tides too I have been,
Sinking and at times staying afloat!
And with the kicks of a dying horse,
I still hang onto the straws at the banks!
Scorched by the sun from all of my digression,
Burnt by all those I trusted on.
Despite it all today I come,
Bowing at your feet I am,
My heart to you I lay bare,
Take control my God!
Away from your path I have wandered,
The oaths of Old I have forgotten,
The meaning of obedience I have forgotten,
For in sacrifices I built my life!
A wandering tormented soul I come to you,
Lost and confused I am,
And today I trace my way back, Giving up my all so that you may fill me up!
Just like the dry bones down at the valley,
Lord give me a new life,
Just as it was in the Beginning, Lord breath life into me.
Draw me your path and I shall follow,
Bestow upon me thy wisdom,
For I know in your joy I’m strengthened
As I let your words guide my feet!
Lift me up high on your shoulders,
And at your feet daily will I be found,
Set me up above like the city on the hill,
And all shall see your light shining in me!
With my voice I shall praise you,
With these words I shall spread the word,
For in all Heavens or Earth,seas or land…
There is none like you!
