Fear And Shadows – Proverbs 12:25

Fear And Shadows – Proverbs 12:25

Weighed down by the lack of hope
Set in shadow by the fear
As anxiety holds to these bones
A heart and mind can’t break free
Oh who can bring this soul some light
Who could lift this weight
Maybe I just need a kind word
Just one to set this soul alight

Proverbs 12:25

As Every Tear Falls – Psalm 107:14

As Every Tear Falls – Psalm 107:14

As I drift back
Back towards the shadows
That throw their cloak
Around my heart
I’m calling out
For a saviour
As every tear falls
My cries ring out
Ever louder
Ever desperate
For the Once to come again
And break away these chains

Psalm 107:14

Lost In Shadows – 1 Chronicles 29:15

Lost In Shadows – 1 Chronicles 29:15

Am I cast out
For my hope is lost in shadows
Does my world fall
Now I’ve let the shadows in
How can I find the light
The light the Son brings
How can I find a way
To pull back the hope
From out of the shadows

As The Shadow Falls – Proverbs 2:8

As The Shadow Falls – Proverbs 2:8

As the shadow falls
As the mist descends
And emptiness prevails
And hope ebbs away
I know though all may seem lost
He will never leave my side
He will guard this very heart
Throw His wings over my soul
There will be light tomorrow
When this darkness comes to an end
And this smile will be the real one
Not just a mask upon my face
I will hold on tight to Him
As the shadow falls
And I will see the sunlight
As He guides me home

Where My Heart Fails – Romans 12:9

Where My Heart Fails – Romans 12:9

Where my heart fails
When sincerity is lost
Is it that I really love?
Or do shadows guard my heart?
I try to turn my face
Away from the rotten in the dark
Trying to hate the evil
Rather than let it in
I run from it all
I run to Him
But the shadow won’t stop
It follows everywhere I go
Even though I cling to Him
The shadow is ever near
And this is where my heart fails
When I let the shadow near
But I won’t let go
I cling with all I have
With everything I’ve got
Only safe in the knowledge
That above it all
And beyond my strength
My God will never let me go

Shadows (Psalm 91:1)

Shadows (Psalm 91:1)

From shadows of my own making
I have been led
It’s weight had been lifted from my heart
Now I am free to rise
A cloak of gloom lifted from my soul
A light rests upon it forevermore
My shelter now is with the Almighty
Under the shadow of His wings I lie
The love of His heart beats within mine
As I rest here within His peace

Psalm 91:1

Wisdom Beyond The Shadows (Proverbs 24:14)

Wisdom Beyond The Shadows (Proverbs 24:14)

We think we know so much
Our wisdom of our own understanding
Dreaming of light
Yet we rest in shadows
In our shadows
Is our false wisdom
Yet beyond this lies the truth
Will we reach beyond our shadows
To the light and the blessed truth
In this we find ourselves
And discover the wisdom
Of the truth that leads to hope

Proverbs 24:14

Before Shadows (John 1:5)

Before Shadows (John 1:5)

Here I see the shadows
They loom upon the horizon
Drawn to where once there was comfort
The shadow in the soul longs to return

The shadows they draw ever closer
I feel it’s icy touch
So here I cry and here I pray
Head bowed below the oncoming dark

Yet a light before shines brightly
It’s warmth spreads across my soul
From my knees I rise and walk
Into the light and the Father’s arms

John 1:5

The Cave

The Cave

I’m lost tonight
Inside the night of my day
I’m running far
From where I’m called

On tired feet I run today
To a place no one will come
Into a world I create myself
To hold a prisoner in his shame

Because I’m digging holes
To bury my soul
In the darkest of nights
Below the deepest of shadows

My winters have all come at once
Every step so cold
With these bare feet
Torn within the ice

Times I wish the courage of the steel
Had cut deep on that darkest day
I could be sleeping now
And this pain turn to dust and disappear

Hidden in my cave
A tattered web of worn shadows
In the cracks there is a light
Calling me to reach out

A veil of shadows is torn
And there I see His face
He calls me out once again
Yet I just cower lost and afraid

My hands they shake
They tremble as I reach
I want to go touch the light
It’s warmth I feel upon my heart

Heaven’s light shines beyond my veil
In His face I see my hope
Yet I need someone to come to me
And dance with me in heaven’s glow

There’s hope tonight
In the light that dissolves the veil
It holds my hand as I stand
Maybe soon we’ll have this dance
