06. Without Running Away

A Way To See In The Dark
by Jason Gray



 

Iíve spent some days looking
For a length of rope
And a place to hang it
From the end of my hope
But where I thought hope had ended
I always find a little bit more

Itís not like Iím trying
To be optimistic
If the truth be told
Iíd rather dismiss it
And be free of the burden
Of the living that hoping requires

To bring my heart
To every day
And to run the risk of fearlessly loving
Without running away

Jesus is speaking
But itís so hard to hear
When disciples with swords
Are cutting off ears
Broken and bleeding
Iím waiting for healing to come

But wounded is a part
Iíve learned to play well
Though the wound may run deeper
Than I know how to tell
Where painís an addiction
That keeps me buried alive
But when itís all that I know
Iím afraid to leave it behind

And bring my heart
To every day
And run the risk of fearlessly loving
Without running away

My heart is not lifted up
My eyes are not lifted up
But calm and quiet is my soul
Like a babe with its mother is my soul

After awhile in the dark
Your eyes will adjust
In the shadows youíll find
The hand you can trust
And the still small voice
That calls like the rising sun
Come

And bring your heart
To every day
Run the risk of fearlessly loving
Without running away
