1. I Am


Here, in the passing of each breath, I am;
Here, in your birth and in your death, I am;
Here, behind each passing fear,
Now, I am forever near—
Now, no matter how long you have slept, I am.

Here, in the burning of the fire, I am;
Here, at the heart of your desire, I am;
Here, behind each passing tear,
Now, I am singing strong and clear—
Now, even if you cannot hear, I am.

Now, in each moment of your life, I am;
Now, in the darkness and the light, I am;
Now, though the veil has seemed so strong
Here, I’ve been with you all along—
Here, beyond the end of time, I am.
I am, I am, I am, I am…
