When the darkness tries to take over me,
Flooding me with terrifying fear.
I shake and my tears are unstoppable.
Jagged thoughts and every hideous word ever said to me returns.
The thoughts are said in my own voice in my mind,
But I know who truly speaks...
The dark whispers come from a defeated foe!
I cry out – with my tattered shreds of faith
From this place of ruin and loss
God's Holy Peace,
Nothing missing, nothing broken,
Is given to me freely.
I am His – He is mine.
I am saved!
