Hound of Heaven Lyrics

I fled Him down the nights and days
I fled Him down the path of years
I heard all about the love of the One
Who was following me
I clung to every shallow friend
The whistling mane of every wind
I feared that once I tasted that love
I could never let go

Cause those strong feet kept following the way I sped
But the love that followed overcame the fear that fled

So I ran inside the world again
To the ones who called the Hound their friend
I thought in vain that would be the best place to hide
To mother nature's breast I flew
And shouted to the sky so blue
Please hide me from this One so set on loving me

Came back a voice that sounded like the bursting sea
None will shelter you who will not shelter me
Shelter me, Shelter me

Finally, I can flee no more
I yielded for Your open door
The prize You sought for so long is finally Yours
Your dark and gloom have hounded me
For so long now that I can't see
I surrender all those things You've taken from me

Came back a voice that did not take him for your heart
I only wanted You to seek them in my all

The dark and gloom you said
You could no longer stand
Was after all the shadow of My loving hand
How little worthy of My love could anyone be
Who else could ever love you, save only Me...
