Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

From before time


From before the beginning of time
You did already measure me out,
did determine my humanity and character.
You did know
when I would fall and stand up again
and if I do forget
Your love and sacrifices
I ask that You bring me back to You again.
