In the shadows here am I,
shielded from the blinding light,
masked by darkened-shroud of night,
in the heavens, You pass by.
In Your glory there, I AM,
all creation waits below.
Earth yields life beneath your glow.
Timeless pistons stroke the cam.
'Cross this vast and endless void,
filled with stars and emptiness,
nothing more and nothing less,
than Your Word deftly deployed.
Words of power and of love
whispered longings, which uplift;
ev'ry utterance a gift,
from the holy One above.
And in awe shall I abide,
through these scant and numbered days,
touched and warmed by mercy's rays
in the shadows where I hide.
