    From the morning til midday
    Until night covers my eyes,
    My heart will not refuse you,
    Though my flesh continually tries.

    No, your motive isn't clear,
    Nor is your agenda yet understood,
    But your plan for me isn't evil
    It is only for my good.

    Know that I love you Holy One,
    Even as I walk thru Egypt.

    As I walk thru this place,
    I prepare for you a portion.
    A praise, a thanksgiving,
    And a daily devotion.

    I will come away from Egypt,
    Unto a marvelous place,
    If only you will guide me and
    Let me experience your grace.

    Know that I love you Jesus,
    In the hard places of Egypt.

    I've been broken at the snap
    Of every hardship whip.
    Broken down, yet I stood
    With all your praise on my lips.

    Sand was blown into
    My eyes by temptuous winds.
    I couldn't half see because
    Of all my sins.

    And though I sinned against
    You in doing wrong,
    I felt your conviction when
    I heard your mourning song.

    Despite bouts of weakness
    You were still my fire by night.
    Loving me, encouraging me,
    To do what was right.

    Your precious words are powerful,
    Restoring my soul.
    Your love has healed me mightily
    And made me whole.

    I am coming out of my eygpt with
    Joy and glorious praise,
    Because you've shown your faithfulness
    Through each and every phase.

    All because I loved you,
    I would not give up.
    Write it down Holy One,
    I loved you in Egypt...

    And I always will.

    i'm never disappointed

    when i read your flow
    cuz i know i can always
    get my praise on afterwords
    and this piece means more
    to me because i frequently
    compare myself- my life
    to the children of israel
    wandering for 40 years...
    egypt is the start!
    THANK YOU!!
