this is the song of promise
in the middle of me hurting so much
that i’m just a little closer to pain
than i am to joy. 
forgiveness wells up inside of my heart
like i am a fountain
filled with water from a Living Source. 
and though things will never be the same
i can drip drip drip
all over those close to me until we can both sing
i’ve been healed.
i’ve been healed.
i’ve been healed.

this is the song of belief
in the middle of me forgetting what it is like
to dance upon the heights
by the side of the Lover of my soul
Who’s embrace is like a glowing fire
warm warm warm
against my cold little skin.
love me.
love me.
please.

this is the song of tomorrow
in the middle of a today that feels an awful like a yesterday
i thought i’d always have.
but the Spirit is of change, and change is of pain,
and i am of both.
i can drip drip drip
until i am warm warm warm
beside the fire of Your Love for me,
drinking from the depths of Your care.

because this is the song of promise
in the middle of me hurting so much.
and when you sing yourself forward

you gotta go.
you gotta go.
you gotta go.
