“Are you there?” I asked in the dark of night
With nothing visible, with all hidden from my sight.
I thought it was a whisper, but ‘twas only the wind
Gentle and fragrant as I asked again
“Are you with me? Are you close by?”
Still no sound, ‘cept the ocean’s dark tide.
A teardrop trickled down my solemn face,
As loneliness held me in its embrace
‘Twas then that He answered so sweetly my plea
And reminded me of the promises that He’d made to me.
I’ll never leave you nor forsake you my child
For wherever you go, I’ll be there.
A lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path
Cast all your cares upon me. Just ask!
A smile crossed my face as I then beheld
The beauty of His wondrous love; and I knelt.
Glorious shimmers of the full moon’s light,
Now kissed the waves as they rose in delight.
They, too, felt my Savior’s presence as I knelt there
Humble before the King, who had promised to share
The treasures of heaven with this peasant girl,
And abundant life for me, while I walk in this world.
Such an awesome thought, that He gave His all for me
That I could be with Him throughout eternity.
