Headed to the Other Side

I love to sit and watch in the calm before the storm
In the distance lightning flashes as the thunder sounds alarm
I can smell the fragrance of the rain that fills the air so warm
And I know I am safe from harm

Suddenly the wind picks up as the storm clouds whirl around
The rain begins to strike the trees then pummel to the ground
The thunder and the lightning throughout the sky abound
Yet I know I am safe and sound

I’m headed to the other side safe in Jesus’ arms
I’m headed to the other side with overwhelming calm
His peace is all around me
Though storm and wind I see
He promised we’d go to the other side

I watch the storm pass over as the wind starts to abate
The clouds unfold above me like the opening of a gate
The blue sky and the sun appear as though they’re never late
Then a rainbow marks the sky as I wait

I’m headed to the other side safe in Jesus’ arms
I’m headed to the other side with overwhelming calm
His peace is all around me
Though storm and wind I see
He promised we’d go to the other side

I waited on His mercy
I waited in His grace
To get me through the storms
To bring me to this place
I’m on the other side
Safe within His arms
I’ll never leave my Lord
He keeps me from all harm

I’m headed to the other side safe in Jesus’ arms
I’m headed to the other side with overwhelming calm
His peace is all around me
Though storm and wind I see
He promised we’d go to the other side

You Are My Keeper

As a wandering soul
In the desert of life
I try to find my way
And I travel through
This sin filled world
Tempted day by day
I can read a book
Or watch a show
They seem to satisfy
But the promises
Soon turn into lies

Then I realize
That you have been there
Waiting all the time
Your still, small voice
Was calling me
But I just walked on by
In the quiet of
My darkest hour
Your voice has broken through
And I realize
That all I need is you.

You are my keeper.
You keep me safe from all harm
You are my shelter
In the storm.
You are my refuge
When I don’t know where to run
You are my strength
When my strength is gone

Now I boldly walk the road
Where I used to turn and run
Your mercy has restored my faith
New life has begun
I train myself to listen
To your whisper in my ear
Until the day you suddenly appear

On that day
I will rise to meet you
Caught up in the sky
Kept by your
Holy Spirit
All throughout my life

You are my keeper.
You keep me safe from all harm
You are my shelter
In the storm.
You are my refuge
When I don’t know where to run
You are my strength
When my strength is gone
