I long to run far away;
Away from pain, hurt, rejection.
Running swift like a cheetah,
Away from the cold, dark, dry, barren desert.
I long to run swiftly
Toward acceptance, love, and healing,
Toward the Land of Peace and Hope;
The land of refreshing waters, green grass, and light.
In that land I’ll thrive;
With my feet planted on the rich soil I’ll bloom.
Sunshine will warm my face and dry my tears.
Flowers of joy, peace, and love will spring up.
Jesus is Prince over Peace and Hope.
I’ll be his princess.
We will dance the dance of freedom together,
with peace, joy, and love blooming around us.
