Shadows

At night, the shadows are the stillness
and I am panicked as I pray:
Lord, be with me.

In the day, the shadows are the desolation
and I am resigned as I pray:
Lord, be with me.

In the news, the shadows are the flood of despair
and I am broken apart by pain as I pray:
Lord, be with me.

Among enemies, the shadows are the betrayal
and I am tired & angry as I pray:
Lord, be with me.

Even though I walk through shadows
along unfamiliar terrain,
I fear no predator
for you stay with me.
(Psalm 23:4)
