What A Comfort

What a comfort

To a wretched soul

To dwell in the shadows

That awesome fear

Draws me back

Into the darkest corners

The white-hot sear

Of light unapproachable

Exposure and nakedness

Before that great authority

How could I face

The One I have overthrown

I have never felt

So great a power

'til I have seen things

From the view of heaven

To see all my wickedness

Exposed in a light

That light which leaves

No shadow nor hiding place

How could this be true

Enemy from birth

Attempting to seize a throne

Which I dare not approach

And yet endless mercy

And grace without end

Bound to that of which

I was born incompatible

Infinite mystery

So unfathomable
