beyond blue

Then said he,
Give me thy hand;
so he gave him his hand,
and he drew him out,
and set him upon solid Ground,
and bid him go on his way.

O, that You would
be ever toward me
to comfort in
times of despair
and offer a hand
for respite from burden
when solid footing
is all I hope for
just in this moment…

I feel the earth
fail beneath my step
and my foot-fall
becomes heavy – provoking plea
and i look to heaven
and see clouds
and blue sky with
such lovely presence
and beyond blue

You are there
