How Loving, How Caring!
“I heard Him say, “Go there and speak”
But I ran away, boarded a ship
Like the Titanic, I was bold.
I was wise in my way, in my eyes.
Unbeknown to me, I leaked and was weak.
I had betrayed myself, my soul sold.
And down I went, drowning
to a point of no return.
Then I remembered my fault
And cried out to Him.
In the depths I raised a hymn of praise,
I worshipped my Maker for His mercy,
His wisdom, power, sovereignty.
Like Paul and Silas, I was not silenced,
Even in the rain, pain and grave.
He was moved, quickly forgave
Commanded an earthquake
To wash me ashore.
And there I was,
Even with a pillow
Under my head.
How loving, how caring!
