#6 Then Sings my Soul
Tested, yet ever Yours
You hem me in.
Jaded, I sit at the foot of Your Cross,
brushing off what today clung onto.
Fresh mercy is here.
I look for You, and even before I feel or hear You,
I am found by You.
Found in love everlasting, found in breathtaking grace.
You lay Your gentle hand upon me,
here is my comfort.
again, I yield my heart to what You will,
Your triumphant tranquillity draws me.
I lay me down
and wait a while.
I behold the refreshing warmth of Your countenance.
You never tire of my heart cry,
my surrendered soul is your desire.
Veil removed now.
I fellowship with creation,
I dance in the splendour of the sunshine.
Within Your fortress, I find freedom,
here my worship is started,
my Father’s joy imparted.
Your glorious majesty is my awakening,
Your exalted state, my kindling.
once more I know that here is home.
You redeemed my life, that I might stand,
to my feet, I rise.
You sustain my steps.
Then sings my soul.
