oh hallelujah

I passed through the fire
like gold was born again
I came out of the crucible
skin stripped raw
trusting as a newborn
no infection to haunt,
purified of all that made me afraid
to come before the holy one

I passed through the water
currents too strong to resist
I was sinking in grief
had drawn my final breath
but mercy saw fit
to reach down
and a way was opened
to the other shore

oh hallelujah, nothing
is more cleansing
than the fire of hardship,
the water that brings death
nothing is higher than the hand
that rescues and saves
