usher me down (day 23)

Is it cheating to post song lyrics for this 31 days series? I hope not because these lyrics have been going through my head for several days now. In college I listened to two artists more than any other. Sara Groves and Jennifer Knapp.  These ladies' songs have been a soundtrack to my life.  The song Usher Me Down was never one I considered a favorite, but when it came up on Pandora last week, it stopped me in my tracks. It may be a new favorite even though it's not a new song.

alone, alone is where I'll be
waiting, waiting so patiently
escape this little war raging
one still small voice
come rescue me

why wait, why wait
why wait for You to usher me down
many oh, many oh Lord my God
the wonders that I have found
when You usher me down

sacrifice and offering
You do not desire of me
I say here I am, You come
as if I ever have to call

why wait, why wait
why wait for You to usher me down
many oh, many oh Lord my God
the wonders that I have found
when You usher me down

who could replace You
none I know of
the throne is Yours alone
can't be taken back, can't be taken back

why wait, why wait
why wait for You to usher me down
many oh, many oh Lord my God
the wonders that I have found
when You usher me down
