Accidentally found you
(Found by you)
Not the places or ways
I was directed
Time, time, time again

I could not see you
Stumbling about
A trespasser, really

Not my place
Not my harvest
I never could produce a thing
Exhausted, lost
Hungry for the truth

Give myself away
To have you
(Be had by you)
Hidden treasure
Found by a mere trespasser

Say the right words
Direct all the people
This way and that
I know how it’s done

Still stumbling, still lost
Heart empty
Back aching
Carrying the burden my proof

This place of plenty
Bright lights
Don’t fill my need
Crumbs offered as a feast

Accidentally I found you
So far from where I started
Roaming trespasser
In a place I did not know

Raise my hands!
Raise my heart!
Raise everything I own!

Cast into the winds
Give it all away
Surrender everything I am
If it means that I can stay

Accidentally I found you
Hidden for so long
Far from where I started
It is here I make my home

I could not breathe without you
And yet I didn’t even know
In all my striving, desperate trying
I simply dug myself a hole
No well read script or duty
Ever brought me proof
It was in my stumbling
–A Trespasser–
I found treasure knowing you

“There is far more at stake here than religion.” –Matthew 12:6, the message
