Joshua Stamper - Come Down Thine Own Secret Stair

from by Sounds Familyre



Music by Joshua Stamper
Words inspired 'That Holy Thing' by George MacDonald (1824–1905)

They all were looking for a king
To slay their foes and lift them high;
Thou cam'st, a little baby thing
That made a woman cry.

O Son of Man, to right my lot
Naught but Thy presence can avail;
Yet on the road Thy wheels are not,
Nor on the sea Thy sail!

My how or when Thou wilt not heed,
But come down Thine own secret stair,
That Thou mayst answer all my need--
Yea, every bygone prayer.
