I Hear You Singing Over Me


I Hear You Singing Over Me

I hear You singing over me.

Words of love.
Words of mercy.
Words of compassion.
Words of faithfulness.

I hear You singing over me.

From the heights.
From the depths.
From the breadths.
From the widths.

I hear You singing over me.

Songs of intimacy.
Songs of acceptance.
Songs of longing.
Songs of devotion.

I hear You singing over me.

Promises to protect.
Promises to abide.
Promises to heal.
Promises to restore.

I hear you singing over me.

I am at peace.
I am at rest.
I am comforted.
I am safe.

About unabashedhope

The name Unabashed Hope comes from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Unabashed means not embarrassed, disconcerted or ashamed. I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
