Falling, falling, falling am I
Into the deep, deep pit of despair
Darkness all around
Hands reaching, reaching, reaching
Down towards me
Lifting me gently towards the light
I collapse, falling, falling……
Do not be afraid my child
Fear not for I am with you
Falling, falling, falling am i
Into the fist of darkness
I sink deep into the harsh
Reaching, reaching, reaching
Hands upwards – I try my fragile voice
‘O Lord, oh please hear my cry’
Hands pulling, pulling, pulling me
Out of the fist of darkness
The light shines brightly.
God’s soft eyes look upon me
All is well, my child, all is well
You are safe. You are loved.
You are worthy. You are appreciated.
Falling no longer I am
I sit under the shelter of God’s wings
Soaring high like eagles
I am safe.
It is well with my soul.
