realizing I have plenty.
While I travel the way home
I'll see the countryside alone.
I was anxious to get to my family,
praying the weather would be good to me.
I saddled up my horse.
I stayed close to my course.
I had lots of time to think
of what joy He did bring.
Through times of discord,
the times we prayed in one accord.
There was the time of the earthquake,
we did not know what a difference it would make.
It came at the midnight hour.
What would it bring for our tomorrow?
The dishes on the wall raddled,
the baby was asleep in his cradle.
We jumped up in terror,
no place to run from the tremor.
We knelt to pray,
the earth shook, we were afraid.
God show us the way
this could be the day.
Prepare our hearts,
please, do not depart.
Show us how to be saved,
God rattled us up enough to pray.
I remember that night,
What would be our plight?
The answer came, pray in one accord.
We knelt before the Throne of God,
underneath crumbled the earths sod.
We were raddled up inside,
please, Lord forgive our sin of pride.
The earth settled down beneath our feet,
we humbled ourselves and said we now see.
We see that God is Almighty,
He sets the captives free.
Our lives are in Your hands,
we choose You, Lord and make our stand.
We now stand on solid ground,
it is Jesus whom we have found.
Before I realized it I could see the front door,
as I rode up on my horse.
Little did I know how God would intervene,
His miracle I had seen.
He came into our lives,
on that very night.
He raddled the earth beneath our feet
to bring us into victory.
Thank you, Lord I am home now,
I will place my horse in the corral.
I will go in to see my wonderful family.
Thank you, for helping us to believe.
