I AM THE ONE

Written by: Margaret Okubo

In the depths of my heart I feel your presence
When I laugh you hear my silent tears
When I am still you hear my throbbing heart
Who are you from whom I cannot hide?


 In my darkest hour you see me in light 
If I go to the caverns you are there
If I hide beneath the deep you are there
Who are you from whom I cannot hide?


When I sing you detect tears in my voice
When I dance you see my faltering steps
When I dream you are there beside me
Who are you from whom I cannot hide?
 
When I pray you lend me your ears
When I am mistreated you open a doorway to freedom
When I am angry you chasten me
Who are you from whom I cannot hide?

Today you touched my heart
Today I heard you whisper
All things are possible with me
I am the One from whom you cannot hide.
