Young woman looking at a compass and contemplating a new direction for her life.

Compass In The Wilderness

I searched and searched the world around
In hope of faith and meaning
Beyond closed doors and busy streets
Along smoky alleys I sat weeping;

Paths mercilessly entwined
Mere shadows in the wilderness
And up he came, eyes of a hawk
Enticing smiles and covertness;

Words of promise, all disowned
A liar and a thief, his prey he purposed me to be
Beauty, charm and poise, too many to recall
Falling stars amidst the abyss of eternity;

O Hear my cry, My Lord
Hide not Thy face from me this day
For I am weak and shattered
No map, no compass, I've gone astray;

And life took on a new beginning
The shining light of Grace
And to my dreams He brought true meaning
Peacefully in my heart it took its place;

He showered me with His Holy Spirit
To overcome my enemies, strong
And in good faith to endure all things
Knowing to Whom I will always belong.
