I was sitting, reading, when a clap of thunder
took my eye off the page
to a vision of rain reminding me
I'd left my car windows open...
I ran to my car and closed the windows,
averted the crisis
(seats nice and dry)
and went back inside to my reading...
I need more thunder, Lord!
I need more thunder
to get my attention,
draw me out of my dreams
and show me where trouble is looming...
I need warnings, loud ones, to wake me
and shake me from sleep and what keeps me
from seeing more clearly what needs to be done
-- in plenty of time to do it...
I need more thunder, Lord:
a knock on the head, a kick in the butt
to jump start my day and push me along
in the right direction, out of harm's way...
I need your help because on my own
I'm asleep at the switch and need you to nudge me
and open my eyes to see what I need to see
and to do what needs to be done...
