I Am

Oh gently lay your head 
upon my chest
And I will comfort you like a mother while you rest.
The tide can change so fast
but while I stay
the same through Past, the same in Future, 
same Today.
	Oh weary, tired and worn
let out your sighs
and drop that heavy load you hold
cuz mine is light.
I know you through and through
there's no need to hide.
I want to show you love that is deep and high and wide.
	For I am constant.
I am near.
I am peace that shatters all your secret fears.
I am holy.
I am wise.
I'm the only One, who knows your heart's desires.
	Oh gently lay your head upon my chest
and I will comfort you like a mother while you rest.
     ~John Phillips, "I Am"
