Consumed by Fire: “He Waits for Me”

There’s a place I go
when I need a getaway
there’s a peace I know
that sooths the soul
And this life I’ve found
I know it’s not my own
so when I run to you
it’s like I’m running home

where I find peace
I find my way
down by the water
He waits for me
where I find strength for each and every day
joy in the midst of any pain
I believe down by the water
He waits for me

so if you’re rollin’ the dice
and just tryin to make it through
there are hands that are reaching out for you
and if you’re holding back tears
and just trying to be strong
there’s a place that is calling out for you
this is the place that I’m always running to
yes it is

where I find peace
I find my way
down by the water
He waits for me
where I find strength for each and every day
joy in the midst of any pain
I believe down by the water
He waits for me

yeah
oh there is peace
here down by the water
lay it down
here down by the water
lay it down
here down by the water
He waits
He waits
He waits for me
here down by the water
just lay it down
here down by the water
lay it down
here down by the water
He waits
He waits
He waits for me
here down by the water
There is joy
here down by the water
And there is strength
here down by the water
He waits
He waits

where I find peace
I find my way
down by the water
He waits for me
where I find strength for each and every day
joy in the midst of any pain
I believe down by the water
He waits for me

    This song displays eloquently the separation between the physical realm of man and the Spiritual. In the Spirit world nothing physical can harm us.
