When I Run

When I run Lord let it be
Into the arms that uphold me

For when I hurt, I isolate
And hide away
And nurse my pain

I run from God
Thus from peace
And from life
And from strength

Drowning in a sea of doubt
No way, it seems, of coming out

And yet my faintest cry You hear
Oh my God of the open ear

How did I not know You were so near?

Mercy once again extended
Wounds are healed, heart is mended
Days of wandering are then ended

When I run to You
