Audrey Assad Firefly



Wait--I'm alone, sitting on this rooftop,
looking down at the town
below.

Stop, You caught me by surprise;
strange how Your glory can be seen
in a firefly.

Oh, the night is drawing near;
I dream about You as the
lightning storm appears;
and the more I know of You,
the more it's clear
that...

I never know, I never know what You are going to say
I could never
know, I could never know a Mystery that way.

You're pulsing like a steady
heartbeat,
rising like a flame towards the sky
You, You cut the
night.

What's this? This is something new;
there is a deeper beauty in this
quiet side of You.

God, You're soft, soft to the touch
as I run my fingers
through these fields that I love so much...
You are an evening song and I'm
desperately in love,
but...

I never know, I never know what You are going
to say;
I could never know, I could never know a Mystery that way.

Pulsing
like a steady heartbeat, rising like a flame toward the sky,
You, You cut the
night.

I try to catch You like a falling star,
but what kind of God could I
contain in my jar?

Oh, I feel You moving, moving through this land,
and I
kiss the traces of Your unseen hand.

Pulsing like a steady
heartbeat,
rising like a flame toward the sky,
You, You cut the
night...
flickering and luminescent,
moving through the universe, You're
like
You are like a firefly
You are like a firefly
You cut the night.
