Song Description

The song looks at the times when we are feeling like we are in the desert spiritually (dragon times), and finding the courage to get back to the oasis.

Story Behind the Song

Based on the writer's personal experience.

Lyrics

Give us courage
That moves the wheel of time
Face our fear and
Leave despair behind

Give us courage
To seek the peace of God
Through travail and
Temptation we trod

In dragon time
We fight shadows of ourselves
In dragon time
We fight the fear of fear itself
We?re longing for
The sweet peace of God

Stagnant time burns inside with impatience
Battling against myself
Ducking from this fearful thought and that
Longing for an illusive reward
Feeling powerless
To move the wheel of time
Cut off from the source
Of life and joy

Mistaking the feeling of fear
For the thing that is feared
Trading my inheritance
Of faith and hope
For a pot of someone else?s stew
Would I trade the peace of God
For the glittering security
Of money and acclaim

The despair of being in and of the world
Acting and being without regard to eternity
Is especially appealing now
Why go through the eye of the needle to find heaven
When earth has so much distraction

Still I turn and face the dragon time
A fearful shadow of myself is what I see
As my longing for that sweet peace of God
Gives me courage
