i heard him say

I heard Him say

“and when you ran to me
your cheeks flushed with the night
we walked on frosted fields
of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand”[1]

…and I responded

and when You held out Your hand
warmth from lamplight Oil
I, once barren seed upon the sand
sprouted now from fertile soil

i heard Him say

you opened up your heart
and with peace let me in
even tho you had to part
with old thoughts and aged skin

I see your flushed night face
turn to light
running to me as a child
knowing now what is right

I hold you in my arms
I cradle fear away
I remove you from all harm
with thanks you sincerely pray

I gently wipe away
tears long fallen down
their path show deeper wounds
Onto  my path now! without a sound

So I heard the Lord speak to me
Through song and bird upon a tree
I hasten toward that heartfelt cry
for now my soul shalt never die.
