True North

True North

My Desp’rate need exposed in my distress

 A broken heart wide open can receive

A gentle and compassionate caress

The tender touch of Gilead’s reprieve

From pain invited as I turned around

To go my own direction and toward–

My imminent destruction; But I found

Unfailing in His faithfulness, the Lord–

Still holding out True North in love’s pure light

The shadows of illusion shrinking fast;

And I can walk by faith and not by sight

The  passageway to life He gave to last.

To live under his shelter is to know

That His way is the only way to Go!
