Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Lord, Here Where I Stand On My Knees


I want to stretch out my hand
that Your omnipotent hand can take mine
and help me find the kind of faith
to believe like a mere child
without any certainty
and keep trusting that You
do only want the best for me.
