Raised me

When I traveled unfamiliar territory
When I trod on sinking sand
When the grave beckoned for my soul
When I fell into a deep sleep
When hell roared its hungry growl
When I stumbled into pits
When they gathered and danced around my limp soul
Then you roared from heaven
Your fury burned and melted the great mountains
You commanded the deep and it gave up my soul
It spat me out upon the shores
You descended swiftly and hovered over me
You gazed upon me with compassion
You whispered my name once but twice did I hear
You touched me with your finger upon my head
It burned my skin and brandished me as yours forever
Fire burned in my heart as life returned into my frail being
I wince a moment, then I go into spasms
My eyes open to reveal a pool of tears
Your angels bare me up in their wings
I can only moan my gratitude for this sweetest of love
I live because you raised me up
You brought me back again
