Fragmentation (excerpt)

Were it not for words of value
That are spoken in your book
That translate into the blessing
If through spirit eyes I look
Could I even go on living
With a spirit that’s been crushed
And the cries within my heart
That despair has served to hush
Were it not for living presence
Of your Spirit within me
Through your grace and lovingkindness
Could I ‘ere begin to see
That I’m loved beyond all measure
And although I can’t conceive
There’s a plan and greater purpose
For the trials, I believe
I believe because you’ve told me
And I know you cannot lie
And therein lies my sustenance
My comfort and my high
