Perched upon a Precipice

Sometimes life leaves me feeling like I’m perched upon a Precipice

Long way down, few places to turn around and start again.

Can’t go back, or side to side, and going ahead is a way unknown

O, Which way should I go?

But then I think of Him who made the world, who made the stars and sky

The One who hangs the earth on Nothing and gave birds wings to fly

I think about the Ocean’s might, yet He holds back the waves

And the stars too numerous to count that dapple the end of day

I think about His Wonderous love, immeasurable in length,

With no width or height or depth that anyone can count.

For Deeper than the Ocean Depths, and Higher than the Sky

Farther than the Universe expands is the Love of God

Yes, farther than my life expands is the Love of God

Sometimes this world can feel so cruel, not like a home at all

More like a place fallen from Grace, and I someone so small

Where hate takes lives, and hope seems smothered

Yet Our God cries out to us, “Love each other!”

Each one of us Uniquely His, even if we won’t believe

Surely this God who loves me so, will guide me on from here

For Deeper than the Ocean Depths, and Higher than the Sky

Farther than the Universe expands is the Love of God

Yes, farther than my life expands is the Love of God
