Larnelle Harris Album: Comfort In The Midst Track: Desert Of My Days
Desert Of My Days Lyrics
In the desert of my days There came no cooling rain And the burning sun stopped me without mercy And I cried out at the time, "I must be paying for some crime" And in my loneliness it seemed nobody heard me And the days were weeks The weeks were months The months seemed years And the dust and the sand The thirsty man battles fear Praying help would appear
In the desert of my years There fell no rain only tears As I struggled on with hope alone to claim to The rugged hills all looked the same Across the endless dry terrain And to the silent skies I cried, "my God where are You?" And the days were weeks The weeks were months The months seemed years In the dust and sand the thirsty man battles fear Praying help would appear
And then He came to me In a cool and gentle breeze And in a healing rain I heard Him say, "I love you." I've been here my child Every weary mile Though it must've been times When it seemed like I've forgotten you And I carried you through The barren desert to The land of milk and honey now before you Yes, I carried you through The barren desert to The land of milk and honey The land of milk and honey The land of milk and honey Now before you.
