blind.

by e

Walking,stumbling on these shadowfeet
toward home, a land that i’ve never seen
I am changing: less and less asleep
made of different stuff than when i began
and I have sensed it all along
fast approaching is the day

when the world has fallen out from under me
I’ll be found in you, still standing
when the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
when time and space are through
I’ll be found in you

There’s distraction buzzing in my head
saying in the shadows it’s easier to stay
but I’ve heard rumours of true reality
whispers of a well-lit way

You make all things new

When the world has fallen out from under me
I’ll be found in you, still standing
Every fear and accusation under my feet
when time and space are through
I’ll be found in you

Shadowfeet – Brooke Fraser

Is it really easier to stay in the shadows? To be enveloped in darkness – blind.

Is it true that there’s a well-lit road, which has light that keeps me from falling?

Let my steps be light again. To dance – however clumsy.

Unload my heart that I can leap high and land gently. Maybe falls are inevitable – but help me be strong to stand up again.

If I fall, fall with me.

If I arise, let it be you lifting me up.

May I never depart from your presence, nor run away from you ever again.

oh, Jesus, my friend, my brother and my lover.
