by Paul Mayes Jamar
I make a noise to God with restraint I mourn in my never-ending complaint. As I said, oh if I had wings like a dove I then would fly away, and rest in Your love. I would hasten my escape from the storm the wind, and tempest will do me no harm. The city is full of wickedness in the midst, there deceit, and guile do not depart her streets so bare. Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He will sustain thee the righteous shall not be moved but set free. In the storms of life, fly to Jesus on high for rest and healing in Christ, do abide.
