Still

Running from the past.

Hiding from the pain.

Losing myself.

I’m only to blame.

Where’d my life go?

Fallen and broken.

Too much to bear.

My heart torn open.

 

Still You lift me up.

As I cry out to You.

My strength, my comfort.

You carry me through.

Feeling my pain.

Want to set me free.

Holding my tears.

As You call out to me.

“Be still and know I’m God.”

So I come to You,

Completely broken.

Yeah, I’m broken.

 

I’m stained and worn.

Spirit wash over me.

Lay everything down.

I fall on my knees.

Fighting for control.

I’m scared to let go.

Need hope for unseen.

Faith for the unknown.

 

Still You lift me up.

As I cry out to You.

My strength, my comfort.

You carry me through.

Seeing my struggle.

Want to set me free.

Calming my fears.

As You call out to me.

“Be still and know I’m God.”

So I come to You,

Completely surrender.

Sweet surrender.

 

A beautiful mystery.

Discovered by few.

To have the lines fade.

As they fall into You.

A beautiful place.

Few willing to stay.

To lean on and breath.

To not fall away.

 

Still You lift me up.

As I cry out to You.

My strength, my comfort.

You carry me through.

Hearing my praise.

You smile…I’m free.

Share in my joy.

As You call out to me.

“Be still and know I’m God.”

So I come to You,

Completely new.

Yeah, I’m new.
