He Shone a Light Upon My Spirit
A Light Within
A Light to be Seen
In Between
The Surface of Me & You…
Continue to Reach Above to
Glorify Him,
In His Name
For His Namesake
In Jesus Name
Never Forsaken Me
Nor You
Never Abandoned Me,
It’s True
For Rule is He to Operate in Us,
As we Trust in Him
As we Trust in His Ability to Deliver Us
‘Til Kingdom Come
On Earth as We are in Heaven
-ly Bound, From the Ground Up
At the Root of Our Core
At the Root of Our Faith,
For His Sake
In Heaven’s Stake,
Amen, Amen, Amen
