Oasis

Racing through life
without stopping to think
Yet wanting to make good
decisions
Decisions that go
Beyond what is seen

Can it be found
The time and the place
To answer To dreams
And quiet the pace

Feel the breeze
Smell the water
Rest in grass soft and
green
Take a breath
Can you see
In the middle of the desert
Here is life that can
nourish
Shade that can comfort
God has provided
Come and see

Going through the
motions
Trying to pretend
Everything is perfect
There’s no time for friends
Friends who can see Beyond what is said

Can it be found
The time and the place
To answer dreams
And quiet the pace

Feel the breeze
Smell the water
Rest in grass soft and
green
Take a breath
Can you see
In the middle of the desert
Here is life that can
nourish
Shade that can comfort
God has provided
Come and see

Following directions
Without understanding
Objections unvoiced
Not making a stand
A stand that would lead
Beyond what seems
sheltered

Can it be found
The time and the place
To answer dreams
and quiet the pace

Feel the breeze
Smell the water
Rest in grass soft and
green
Take a breath
Can you see
In the middle of the desert
Here is life that can
nourish
Shade that can comfort
God has provided
Come and see
