A hammer struck the mountains
And tremors filled the sky
Black mountains on all sides
Black sky filled with light

And in that burning hour
My heart laid to the ground
Come through that raging clamor
A gentle sound

A voice of sweet elation
With stillness in the flames
The grace of God’s creation
A pathway out of pain

A path of humble soil
His love for even me
I lift myself to walk
And find that I am free

Oh, press on
Press on in breaking bonds
Drink in the light-dashed sky
Drink in the wonder ponds

Surrender, dear, surrender
To starlight from His face
Free your hands to wash in starlight
Be made clean in grace

Oh, earthy hopes and longing flesh
Die you all, like chaff be blown
And on this starlit desert ground
Eternal light be grown
Like flowers be grown
Eternal light be grown
