Faithful Father!



Faithful Father

In climbing this tree of life
I aimed for the utmost,
outermost limbs
but then I came
to this place
I could not move up higher
I could not climb back down
Oh Lord
can I trust you
like a child does
its' father?
Though I'm not always sure
of my trust in You-
Ever faithful You are
to catch me
in the dark hardness of my fall
A Father with His child
there You are to catch me
in the hard darkness of my fall
