My life it seemed hemmed in, with walls on every side,
Whichever way I looked, however hard I tried,
What would be my future, could I be set free?
These walls were like a tomb, this not a place to be!
I prayed my heart to God, to show me what to do,
And heard His message clear, “My Love is great for you,
Behold right now, and know, no matter what’s been done,
I am your Father-Mother, and love you as My son.
By My very nature, my arms are always wide,
My door is always open, from Love one cannot hide”.
I listened and obeyed. One step to Him I trod,
My true home found at last. My life at one with God.
That one step took trust, -and I had to hold God's hand, -
She showed me all Her kingdom, I saw the Promised Land!
God's Love was there, 'twas all around, freedom it was won.
I felt and knew a truth divine: I stood as God's own son!
No matter where you are, just one stride lets you in.
Her Love is always there, and takes away all sin.
God can never shutter His constant love for man,
His door is always open. Walk right through now! You can!
