But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
in this truth,
in this powerful promise from my Lord
I will sink in and find a place to rest
seeking the stillness with Sandy
and singing with the Sunday choir at Deidra's
