Dawn

Lord heal us from the shrapnel left behind
from the war that’s waging in our lives
The cuts are deep. Alone, we can’t go on.

Lord teach us the lessons we refused to see
But continued on in our stubbornness
We battled for way too long.

Lord carry us into your loving light
Through the brokenness of this night
Awaken us to a new dawn.

Sailing

You steered me into the storm

On my trusty boat I went

But the winds picked up

Soon flailing overboard

All my senses spent

This was the way to go?

Why on such a rough sea?

Isn’t there a smoother path

Somewhere designed for me?

But the wind against my sails

Taught me a lesson or two

Gave me new strength and courage

And pointed me straight to you
