Who can sleep
when the groom is in town ___mat9:15
over the face of the deep

and how can I prove
my love for you
I come from broken vows

I’m choosing firmer
footing now
like a dove that hovers _______gen8:9

save me from
my circumstace
cover me in clover

my heart is hushed
the heavens bow
to listen to your voice ______jhn3:29

love requires presence
to turn to in tough times
drove back from paradise

there’s peace inside
the morning light
rising over my shoulder

save me from
my circumstace
cover me in clover

my heart is hushed
the heavens bend
to listen to your voice
