“Oh Praise God,” my spirit says within me,
Let not the light of life give way to fear,
The deepest dwelling place within you,
my spirit which surrounds you,
I see your wounds and collect your tears.
The darkness will not last forever,
My strong arm and army will defeat the foe,
rest in my love and breathe the breath I give you.
Watch the flowers bloom and gentle waters flow.
Trust the shelter to stand strong when storms are threatening,
Who can take away the peace I give my child,
I have not let one moment of your sadness escape my notice.
Your within my shadow placed on high.
We commune together you and I.
Carol Anne Christophers
