When years seem like days to me
No time on my hands
I run away to a place in me
To a faraway land
 
When home seems so far from me
Heaven's lights look dim
It's just as far as my deepest heart
Where my heart's Father lives
 
His quiet voice speaking in silence everyday
If I will only listen to the words He has to say
I'll walk in His Spirit, see Him in my face
I will live, 'cause He will live in my place
 
When life seems so hard to bear
When shadows look real
The circumstance is your Father's care
Go by faith not what you feel
 
If you have been running too
Stop now in your tracks
Turn again to the one in you
Put your burden on His back
 
His quiet voice speaking in silence everyday
If I will only listen to the words He has to say
I'll walk in His Spirit, see Him in your face
I will live, 'cause He will live in my place
 
When years seem like days to me
No time on my hands
I run away to a place in me
To a faraway land
