It’s hard to hold on to you some days,
To grab hold of your firm and rugged face.
I hear of others, who keep you so close,
Am I the one who wavers the most?
My life has been spent seeking you out,
When I find you, I shake all about.
Afraid I will lose you, Excited to have you,
The Mystery that surrounds you,
The stories told about you.
And just as I walk away from your grasp,
You pull me back in with a whisper or glance.
My Faith how you rise, Light up my dreams,
Unfold your majesty, unwrap your schemes.
Let it flail and flap all about,
In my darkest of days, I can’t smite you out.
Now I wonder are you really there,
Tickling my face, stroking my hair?
Or did you escape me once again,
Lost in the midst of unspoken sin?
I wake and I slumber in your pages of life,
I sit and wonder, Can I keep up this fight?
Faith you have called me, Kept me to you,
Just when I feel I lost you, you come breaking through.
