Audrey Assad: Show Me


You could plant me like a tree beside the river
You could tangle me in soil and let my roots run wild
And I would blossom like a flower in the desert
But for now just let me lie

You could raise me like a banner in a battle
Put victory like fire between my shining eyes
And I would drift like falling snow over the enemy
But for now just let me cry

Bind up these broken bones
Mercy, bend and breathe me back to life
But not before you show me how to die

Set me like a star before the morning
Like a sun that steals the darkness from a world asleep
And I'll illuminate the path you've laid before me
But for now just let me be

Bind up these broken bones
Mercy, bend and breathe me back to life
But not before you show me how to die
Not before you show me how to die

So let me go like a leaf upon the water
Let me brave the wild currents flowing to the sea
And I will disappear into a deeper beauty
But for now just stay with me
God, for now just stay with me

  This is one of my favourite songs by Christian artist Audrey Assad. I'm not entirely sure what the lyrics mean, but I still think they're beautiful. One of the things I really love about Audrey Assad is that her lyrics sound like poetry, and since I am such an avid admirer of poetry, I have decided that we shall be friends. :)
