Within

The gale’s biting chill abounds
As icy drifting doubt surrounds
But in the frozen shearing mists
A powerful warmth there persists

Broken earth as tremors shake
Fractured base neath the quake
Inside the roll of aftershock
I feel the presence of The Rock

A wall of flame licks my face
The heat envelopes every trace
Infernos blaze therein I learn
Can not my Host and I to burn

Tidal shift brings despair
I fight to lift my head to air
Er on top the waves I see
My smiling Savior speak to me

Blowing winds are for soul’s sail
Faltered feet search for the Veil
Heat tempers the faith to seek
Waters waves will wake the weak

I AM ever present, child
Your faith lukewarm within the mild
Do not fear life’s dreaded din
I am I AM…I am within
