It is now the darkest hour before the breaking of dawn of a new day,
all is still as I look out of my office window to a sleeping world before me.
As I look, I lift my natural eyes and see a cloudy and stormy sky,
with my spiritual eyes, I look to the heavens beyond the stormy sky,
to a tranquil perfect place were my God and my Saviour have their abode.
I know for sure He is my God and my Precious Saviour, His Son,
because He sent His Son His Peace offering to die on the Cross for me.
I know for sure He is my God and Precious Saviour, His Son,
because His Son His Peace Offering now resides in my bosom,
to care for me, to guide me through the valleys of life.
Now as I lift my eyes towards his heaven my heart waits on Him,
as I wait, my heart meditates upon His love, grace, mercy, and goodness.
Then like a mighty river His peace floods my soul until it overflows,
causing tears of joy and thankfulness to flow like a mighty river,
down on my face until I sob with joy for His love, grace, and mercy towards me.
Of joy and thankfulness for His nail scarred hands, feet, and riven side,
a nailed scared hand He holds out to me each day, He so graciously gives me each day,
And says to me each day, put your hand in my scarred hand and let me,
guide you through this day for I know the way I want you to go,
for it might be in the valleys of trials or in victories.
With tears of joy and thankfulness as He calls me to rest in Him and in Him alone.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Tears of joy and thankfulness as He calls me to abide with Him each morning, and night,
to listen with rapt awe of His wondrous ways He has for me in His Perfect Word.
To know He cares for me, like a small grain of sand in His all-seeing sight,
on the seashore of humanity, yet He cares for little me so very much,
providing all I need according to His desires for me to have.
I have tears of joy and thankfulness, as He calls me to abide in His Word,
to listen with rapt awe of what He has planned for me this day.
Yes, I know someday He will call me home, with all of His blood bought children.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also
