Deep calls to deep
From deep within me comes a keening cry,
That is swallowed into the darkness.
Deep within You I find your familiarity with suffering,
Compassion and the power to heal.
From deep within me worry turns my stomach,
And my anxious thoughts wreak havoc.
From deep within you is a peace that transcends my plans,
You are creator and sustainer of the universe
From deep within me the insecurities loom large,
And threaten to crush me.
From deep within you I find my place –
That I have value and worth and purpose
From deep within me come shame and guilt,
Shouting loud to condemn me.
From deep within you I find extravagant grace
Poured out, granting me forgiveness and hope.
From deep within I find joy in my Saviour,
And worship tumbles out in praise.
