I lay awake waiting for rest to come,
The longest night that seemed to have no end,
The restless seeking ended in God’s safe hands,
I saw the glimmer of dawn’s first light.
My brokenness was seen as an opportunity,
Every advantage taken in destructive pleasure.
Surrounded by hatred’s vile curses,
My life flashed before my eyes,
The end was very close,
Life counted for nothing,
A brief flicker,
When everything is taken,
Even the joy of each breath,
A new truth is desired,
To bring life to my thirsty soul,
Then the final judgement is done,
No excuses, just God and I,
My safe home is found,
Eternity is lived in truth’s light,
Forever celebrating salvation’s promise.
