I Turn to You
Whenever there is a storm cloud, high in the sky.
Whenever the horizon fades, leaving my sight.
Whenever my truths have all turned into a lie.
And my brightest day, has become my darkest night.
I know that if I but just step back in my fear.
That if I but shut my eyes to all that I now see.
That you will begin to step forward, and draw near.
And that by your presence there, you will rescue me.
For I turn to you now, in thunder and in rain.
And I turn to you whenever my life feels low.
For I know that with you, my strength I will regain.
And you will take those clouds, and make me a rainbow.
You will take my hand and then lead me through the rain.
Beyond the rainbows arch, to where the sun does shine.
I turn to you and by your side I will remain.
And throughout this world, you will be forever mine.
