I Am Because You Are I Am

I Am – The Waiting

Walking out alone
The night fits like a stone inside a boot heel
Hot and cold winds blow
And no one’s here to know the way that I feel
The corner I once knew brings me in to view again
So I could stay out late, find new bones to break
But then I’d be dragging home admitting

I am because You are I am
I recognize clearly I see
I am because You are I am
I am in You and You are in me

Spent too many days
Devising many ways
Trying to escape you
Played too many roles
Dug too many holes
Just big enough to fall in to
And I could linger here,
Hoping to disappear in excuses
Come morning’s shining face
I’d be crawling to the place I call home
Where first you cut me loose and

I am because You are I am
I recognize clearly I see
I am because You are I am
I am in You and You are in me

I am because You are I am
I recognize clearly I see
I am because You are I am
I am in You and You are in me

The places that I’ve carried You,
I wouldn’t take a dog
Stop and calmly think of that
Tear this church down to it’s cornerstone
And build it up again, build me up again.

I am because You are I am
I recognize clearly I see
I am because You are I am
I am in You and You are in me

Dear Lord,

Please allow these words to communicate just how inadequate I am and just how fully sufficient You are. May I be reminded of these simple facts as I go out into the world this week.  May my meager words and deeds give avenue for your Spirit to work in the hearts of everyone I meet this week.

-Lorin
