This Wilderness

from by John Mark Nelson

lyrics

Held between the silent hands of fear
Wondering why my life has led me here
Oh the dreams that you have and the way they just disappear

Here I am
Holding out the pieces of all that I planned
All I see
Is the man that I was, not the man I will be
And I pray I find what’s next
Here in this wilderness

Thrown from every place that feels like home
Hanging by the thread of all I know
Will your mercy still follow me here or am I alone

Here I am
Holding out the pieces of all that I planned
All I see
Is the man that I was, not the man I will be
And I pray I find what’s next
Here in this wilderness

Show me where you are
Whispering life into distant stars
Show me you are kind
Whispering hope in our broken lives
