Nichole Nordeman - I Am

English

I Am

Pencil marks on a wall
I wasn't always this tall
You scattered some monsters
From beneath my bed
 
You watched my team win
You watched my team lose
Watched when my bicycle
Went down again
 
And when I was weak
Unable to speak
Still I could call You by name
 
And I said
Elbow Healer, Superhero
Come if You can
You said, I Am
 
Only sixteen
Life is so mean
What kind of curfew
Is at 10pm?
 
You saw my mistakes
And watched my heart break
Heard when I swore
I'd never love again
 
And when I was weak
Unable to speak
Still I could call You by name
 
And I said
Heartache Healer, Secret Keeper
Be my best friend
And You said, I Am
 
You saw me wear white
By pale candlelight
I said forever
To what lies ahead
 
Two kids and a dream
With kids that can scream
Too much it might seem
When it is 2am
 
And when I am weak
Unable to speak
Still I will call You by name
 
Oh, Shepherd, Savior, Pasture Maker
Hold onto my hand
You say, I Am
 
The winds of change and circumstance
Blow in and all around us
So we find a foothold that's familiar
 
And bless the moments
That we feel You nearer
 
When life had begun
I was woven and spun
You let the angels
Dance around the throne
 
And who can say when
But they'll dance again
When I am free
And finally headed home
 
I will be weak
Unable to speak
Still I will call You by name
Creator, Maker, Life Sustainer
Comforter, Healer, my Redeemer
Lord and King, Beginning and the End
 
I Am
Yes, I Am
