Cleft for Me

After reading:

"One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock."
Psalm 27:4-5 

I begin to think:

Woe in me, why do I fear a thing...
Why are dark skies so frightening...
Was it not You, O God, that made the world?
It it not You, O God, in who's hands I'm curled..
Ashamed when I sin in my sinfilled role
You redeem my wrongs and cleanse my soul
High, You lift me up, yet I'm afraid
Yes, I know I'm safe under Your shade,
But how can You, through the mistakes I've made,
See a life worth saving with the blood You paid...
How can I be worth that cost?
My filthy life, just count it lost!
Why do you use your blood you split that day
To drop on my head and wash away
Transgressions I commit against Your love
Yet still You are holding me high above
All my sins
All my fears
All my time spent in wasted years
All my crying
All my pain
All the time You gave I spent in vain
Your love, from it, I can't escape
I'm in awe of You...
When Mountains and Worlds is what You shape
But as Your eye is on the sparrow...

Even Lord as Your eye is on this little one...
So, too, do You think of me, and all I've done,
You still take me in my days of storms
You tuck me away from mine enemies swarms
You do not count me too high a cost
But as a young sheep who was simply lost

May I find You one day, O Lord
In Your tabernacle, O my God...
May I only feel a shimmering radiance of Your beauty
May I be strong enough to only bask in its boundary
Not to speak in my voice, not to whisper a single word,
But to cry and then cry out above all things, forever
"O Lord, You are my God and, in You alone, do I find rest"
