The hounds are snapping at my heels again, LORD...

The hounds are snapping at my heels again, LORD!
They long to tear my Testimony to Your Grace and Love apart!
They slide along on their bellies on the ground... haunches raised...
Ready to spring forward - fast as any dart!
Teeth bared... eyes squinted in concentration...
Saliva dripping from their jaws - I pray that they'd depart!
They are playing with me... circling around... hemming me in...
Fear clutches at me viciously - as their teeth will when the death leap they start...

There is a change in their manner that I can see...
They are on the defensive suddenly!
Their backs now face ME - the cirlce is facing outward...
Is this real - have they forgotten me?
Their eyes search the distance... for The Presence that they sense...
Trying to pierce the gloom - to identify their enemy!
They get ready to attack... as soon as their new prey they view...
Then... Turning tail, whimpering like whipped curs - they flee!

The darkness is fleeing quickly on their heels,
As A Soft, Gentle Light approaches... and Brightens the sky!
You are here... Smiling Your Smile... Speaking my name Softly...
Listening to my fears... Allowing my tears by and by...
Extending Your Hand to Lift me Gently - to sit on Your proud, white steed,
Wrapping me in Your Banner of Love as I softly cry!
Holding me Gently against Your Heart... Turning Your mount to take me Home...
I feel safe... precious... wanted... no longer alone... contented in Your Love - fear departs in a sigh!
