Your Comforting Flame

So the wall of the waters
have closed in on my enemy
and have buried what was a threat
on the floor of the Red Sea.
I break into song
and praise my mighty God.
He has shown me favor
and carried me across.
Yet as soon as I say, “Amen,”
I notice the journey continues.
I pick up my gear and prepare
for whatever ensues.
Off to the mountain I go.
I encamp for a climb.
I need to hear you speak.
We need alone time.
You turn on the light
and speak my name.
I am comforted
by your burning flame.
