Hidden in a cleft

Hidden in a cleft
Jared Linebach

Swirling wind, swelling waves
The storm is fierce tonight
Debris from all directions
Causing fear and fright

Roaring thunder, pounding rain
From which there’s no evasion
The blackened sky overwhelms
Only the wise seek a guardian

Finding calm, feeling secure
Hidden in this cleft
Onward the storm rages
Caring not who is left

Steadfast hope, enduring faith
These will see me through
The storm is no match
For the guardian will pursue

Unending love, unfailing promise
The guardian is quite deft
So, I will be found
Hidden in this cleft
