from within the mist – v4

God is out there in the fog
His grace is ever present
calling to me, come,
from within the mist,
beyond my vision, my sight,
what I can see with my eyes
calling to me, “Trust;
Submit to my will;
come to me, my son,
if you want to live.”
I hear You, Lord, I do,
I want to trust;
but I am held by fear;
my feet are made of clay;
they are of the dust.
