The Shadows Crack

Breaking open,
I fall upon my knees—
Light penetrates my soul.

The cracks within my heart
Widen as I kneel,
Breaking open.

When I was whole, I needed nothing.
Now I need You, so
I fall upon my knees.

When I was whole, I lived in darkness;
Now the shadows crack, and
Light penetrates my soul.


  1. Love the last stanza...so much truth in that. Beautiful song to go with it.

  2. Oh this is beautiful Esther! Now the shadows crack - what a lovely image.

  3. whole in the darkness or cracked but in the light. food for thought indeed
