Glimmer of God

When darkness descends
And lightness departs,
Glimmer of God be on me.

When hope shrivels up
And despair settles in,
Glimmer of God be on me.

When my head hangs low
And my shoulders sag,
Glimmer of God be on me.

When my heart beat slows
And my lungs can't breathe,
Glimmer of God be on me.

The dying grass
And the driving rain
Conspire to steal the day.
The weeping willow
And the sighing wind
Threaten to carry away.

Like the wispy cocoon
That quivers and wakes,
Like the butterfly wing
That shimmers and shakes,
Like the lining of silver
That through cloud cover breaks...

Glimmer of God be on me.
