Lamb

  
Iím in the presence of the Lamb, † †
That walks the sleep of dreams that burn † †  
Within the chink of what I am, † †  
That finds me bowed at every turn. † †  
†† †  
And who am I, what should I think, † †  
In every nook of darkest night. † †  
Absolve my wounds upon the brink, † †  
I call on Him, I shake with fright † †  
†† †  
In every nook of darkest day, † †  
But conflagrationís finger tap † †  
Is of His want to light the way, † †  
By lightning strike & thunder clap. † †  
†† †  
A whispered bush from God and yet, † †  
I hold my tongue and thus I wait. † †  
What is this miracle beset, † †  
A plague, a knowledge, of my fate? † †  
†† †  
What of my faith? Maybe Iím odd, †  
But here Iím with the Lamb of God.
