So quietly you came to me

So quietly you held my hand

Leading me to still waters

To a new and promised land.


So quietly you spoke to me

Your gentle voice inside my head

My thoughts were rejoicing

In what was being said.


“I’ll show you a better life

If you put your trust in me

I need to show you many things

But first you need to see.”


So tenderly you showed me

My life was not quite right

And as you held my hand

We walked from darkness into light.


I thank you dear Father

I know I won’t forget

The day you whispered in my ear

“Child of mine – it’s time our spirits met”
