Standing Still

The storm threshes the forest Limbs and branches are broken And I, alone in my emptiness Search for your love's kind token By standing still The billows toss behemoth tides The waves around me heighten Mast or lighthouse, nothing abides All that can be shaken is shaken I'm standing still To see the dry land when the river Rolls back the curtain of your power To find my shelter in the Creator My Rock, my shelter, my deliverer Here standing still For not in the earthquake and the fire Not in the thunder and the storm, alone I wait to see the prayer of my desire In the silence beside his merciful throne I'm standing still
