I saw God

I saw God in the slums yesterday
He was just a small little boy
I tickled him til he laughed and cried then flew away
and we were filled with so much joy

I saw God on her knees yesterday
Tears ran down she was overcome
I shared my food with her family
and I was the one who was left undone

I've been looking looking looking for Him
and I have found Him time and again

I saw God in the slums yesterday
He was a crippled man with a bachelor's degree
He said can you help me find a job
But I gave him what I had and he found eternity

I saw God in my house yesterday
She was just a small little girl
Broken body and a broken heart
and I took her I took her into my arms
As she cried love came down
When I looked at her again she was wearing a crown

I've been looking looking looking for Him
and I found have Him time and again

I saw God in the village yesterday
She was a woman who couldn't speak or hear
We prayed a prayer of faith and decided to believe
We wept as she spoke for the first time in 20 years

I've been looking looking looking for Him
and I found have Him time and again






faith.

I've never been this far
My faith stretched like a rubber band
at its breaking point
I've climbed mountains
Slayed dragons
Conquered cities
But this
This is the the most faith I have
Ever had to muster
In the first minute of conversation
It was written in your eyes
Your hands
The way you moved
I could clearly see you there
The heavens opened for a split second
And I ran in the opposite direction
Did I really see and hear what I thought I did
Its been almost 7 years
7 years of turmoil war and death
7 years of birth and growth and life
since I saw your face
The circle of life brought you around again
It can't be a coincidence
Synchronicity is dancing in perfect time
But in my opinion she is enjoying the dance
a little too much
Because you are now so far away
and here I am waiting again
On the edge of the cliff
Wondering if its synchronicity dancing
behind the curtains and on the stage
or if its just all in my head
My heart playing tricks
I'm gonna take a leap of faith
this time
what have i got to lose except
time
You are worth it I think
Please come for me
Come to my rescue
Wake me up from this dream
Tell me you belong in my heart
Fly me away
Lest I fall off the edge of this cliff and die.
Faith, I take your hand
Don't disappoint me again.
