I know You are the Tree of Life
That, I can clearly see
And out there on that frightful limb
Is where You’ve beckoned me
You’re calling me to come again
To that old place where I have been
How can you ask me Lord to go?
Back to prison-place, I hated so
You’re asking me to trust You;
Didn’t I do that once before?
I asked You for a miracle
Instead You closed all doors
Yet something deep within me knows
No safer place can be
Than out there on that dreaded branch
To cling, and wait for Thee
So here I am—please take my fears
Give new heart brave and bold;
Away old doubts—bring me out!
So I can soar, when wings unfold…
I’ll pay the price so I can fly
Up to that moon of gold
With love from You—and dreams anew
Bringing hope to young and old!
