The Cliff

One stood upon a cliff
   in the midst of a storm.
Suddenly she was blown over the cliff.
Grabbing for dear life,
   she clung to the cliff by her finger tips.
Slipping against the fierce wind,
   she prayed, "O God its too hard to hang on!
                Catch me when I let go!"
A voice from the cliff cried,
   "Do you trust me?"
   "Oh, yes -- catch me!"
   "Then hang on and reach up for me
    I will pull you up and stand with you
against the tide!"
