I search for you and find you, Lord,
in silence in the wilderness.
Beyond the earthquake, wind and fire
beyond the me I must confess.

What twisted route has brought me here
to sit, where all is colourless?
Is it my fear, or sin or loss?
Why meet me in your wilderness?

I lay my questions in the dust
and wait. The quiet stillness sings
of you, who works in perfect peace
and brings new life from hidden springs.

Then hope drops down on barren sand
‘till arid places flood with rain
and wilderness becomes a womb
to birth your joy in me again.
