Running free

Where have all those words gone

They’ve run and hid themselves under a rock

Waiting for the rain to fall

Then they’ll come out of hiding

Shoot out from under the earth

Where they spread their roots deep and wide

Stretch out towards the sun

And run like a wild stallion 

No longer constrained by man

No longer penned in by the world

But running wild

Running free

Who is a God like You

It’s a small world

When I see Your kingdom

Grow bigger everyday

When I see You in the picture

Your picture grows larger day by day

The triumph of Your steadfast love

Keeps drawing me with tender mercy

Your faithfulness compels me again and again

To look up and see

How great You are

How good You are

How kind You are


Before the clock strikes twelve

And the day is done

What will I face

How will I run

This great race

With every marker set in place

Through lush green valleys

And desert wastelands

Mountain heights

And ocean depths

Stretched to the limit

To breaking point

Then soothed and rested

By pools of living water

This eternal fountain never runs dry

I drink and I thirst no more

My eyes set on Jesus

My destiny and high calling

Toward the finishing line

Where Christ awaits

My ultimate prize

Eternal Rock

The tree stands on the edge

Of a great cusp

Fully stretched

Leaning into the wind

With it’s breath commanding the sky

The giant is tossed by it’s power

Moving from side to side

Like a dancer

Tossed and caught

With the skill and power of strong hands

It’s branches and leaves 

Trusting through the storm

That’s it’s roots are embedded 

Deep within the soil

Bound around

A great and ageless rock

Which holds it fast and true

Till the coming of a new day
