How deep is deep enough?
By: R. A. Slater
I’m way down deep
At the bottom of this pit
And the walls are very steep
I’m up to my knees in mud
But I know it could be worse
I could be covered with dry dust
It is warm down here where I am
My bones feel as though they’re aflame
Though I see no fire burning
The darkness is thick and heavy, but that’s all right
For every drop of glory that falls into this pit
Splits the darkness like a flaming meteorite
I can see His light shining
In the great far distance
Letting me know that I’ve not been abandoned
The walls are too steep to climb
I am torn and bruised
Exhausted from trying
Perhaps if I dig deeper
I will find a hidden reservoir
Living water to refresh
O Lord, I cry and shout!
Let the rain pour in!
Open up the deep!
Fill me from within
Cover me from above
Won’t you please shower me with Your love?
May Your falling rain drench my skin
And combine with the rising deep
To lift me above to where You are
For Your glory I do long
In Your presence I wish to dwell
Where Your promised joy strengthens me
It is for this I await
With expectant faith
At the bottom of this well
