Sometimes I feel like I cannot breathe
Life’s complications they just take a hold of me.
Nights can seem far longer
As the shadows they grow stronger
Spinning fear inside my head.
How can I stop the burning questions?
Calm the restless storms that drench my soul?
Can I just reach now for my Savior?
Find the calm that is the Lamb.
Breathe his warmth, the loving Lamb.
Shine his light, the great I am.
When the feast still leaves me empty
Hunger plain for so much more.
Feed the pain for my past sorrow
With the joy-filled saving Lamb.
Still the Mighty great I am.
