Looking For A Savior


Looking For A Savior

"Jesus, who became broken on our behalf, lavishly extends “the sympathy of heaven” — He knows what we’re going through. He’s not millions of miles away. He’s in the dirt with us. He’s in the mess. And that is good news." (Nathan Fry, United Pursuit)

I abandon my addiction to the certainty of life
And my need to know everything
This illusion cannot speak, it cannot walk with me at night
As I taste life’s fragility

I am looking for a savior I can see and know and touch
One who dwells within the midst of us
May a broken God be known in the earth beneath our feet
May our souls behold humility
May our souls behold humility

When our plans become the casualties of getting through the day
We begin to know our weakness
And denial isn’t strong enough to hold our fears at bay
And we can’t escape our emptiness

I see the sympathy of heaven in the earth and wind and trees
Hope within the rising sun and its setting

I am am searching for meaning
I am looking for healing
I am haunted by your reflection
I was blinded by my addictions
I am torn apart by the dying
I am giving up on escaping
Will I learn to live without taking
Will I begin to see beauty in the making

I can’t pretend to know
The beginning from the end
But there’s beauty in the life thats given
We may bless or we may curse
Every twist and every turn
Will we learn to know the joy of living
