What once seemed sturdy grounds began to shake
engulfing minds and whatever else it could take
A young girl is hanging on grasping for some solid ground
She promises herself she will not drown,
Lying there she cries out with all her soul
I’m here God!…take me whole!
And all at once renewal washed over her land
Like the freshness of a new year, as the Lord grabbed her hand
Her life began anew that day
She promised the lord to never again go astray
Each morning the sun brings a day’s renewal
The girl rises with the confidence as one of God’s crown jewels.
