I sought to flee from
Your sight, yet there
was no place I could go
in this world where You
did not call home

As high as my eyes could
see, as low as the deepest
seas, there is nothing lord
which is infinite, for where
it ends You are…and where
Your spirit is it has no
endings

And I sought to flee from
Your sight, but Your hand
was always upon me, and
where I was, You made me
to have a profound and deep
need for You…

Because the place I sought
to be Lord, ‘You was there
waiting.’

(1976)

Isaiah 30:18
“Nevertheless, the LORD will wait so he can
be gracious to you; and thus he will rise up
to show you mercy. For the LORD is a God of
justice. How blessed are all those who wait
for him.

Psalm 5:3
LORD, in the morning you will hear my voice;
in the morning I will pray to you, and I will
watch for your answer.
