The Great I AM

I saw the Lord!
In the thunder and rain!
I saw the Lord
When I called out his name!

I sought through the stars
The face of God!
AND On this night
I held no shame.

On my feet
Through the window I stared,
Grieving and scared.

The emptiness in my spirit
Could not compare,
To an endless pit;
A black hole of despair.

And through the depths of my soul
Through my shattered heart filled with pain,
No one to turn to
No one to heal me- No person
No thing.

But wow!
The awesome power of EL Shaddai!
He’d seen me on my knees!
Grasping for air
Tormented by grief,
Yelling to him

“Please take this hurt!
I don’t want to cry!
Help me oh Lord!
I fear I will die!”

Millions of tears
And words unsaid,
My heart lay in pieces
My spirit lay dead.

But oh!
The awesome power of the Lord!
He picked me up- pieces and all!
I didn’t go down into the pit!
He didn’t let me fall!

I looked up one day
And I was healed!
Another miracle
Had been revealed!

I am truly amazed by the Lord, My King!
He has lifted me up onto eagle’s wings!

I soar higher than EVER before
As he leads me through a different door,
“My treasure is in heaven!”
I exclaim.
And I remember
The thunder
and rain.

But look! There is no going back
I search only for him!
For he is my love,
My savior,
The Great I AM!
