“On the surface not a ripple
Undercurrent wages war.
Quiet in the sanctuary
Sin is crouching at my door.
How can I be so prone to wander?
So prone to leave You?
So prone to die?
And how can You be so full of mercy?
You race to meet me and
bring be back to life.
I wake to find my soul in fragments,
Given to a thousand loves.
But only One will have no rival…
Hangs to heal me, spills His blood.
Curse-reversing Day of Jesus,
When You finally seize my soul…
Freedom from myself will be
The sweetest rest I’ve ever known.” (Chris Rice)
I have yet to find the above song online, I have it on CD in my car presently. I hope to be able to post it… for it is simply beautiful!
Until then, below is an equally moving song, along the similar theme…
“He has formed me from the dust and to dust I shall return. He has made me in His light and to light I shall return. And I’ll be free at last… to lay it all down… and the sun will never rise again, for He will be my light. My heart will never, never, never break His heart again.” (2nd Chapter of Acts)
