Like a tree planted by the living waters
I put you where I want you to grow
I keep you there as long as you need to be
Then tell you when its time to go
Only to fertile lands will I take you
The journey is not that long
So trust in me, I’ll tell you when the time is right
Believe in me and you’ll be strong.

You’re in the right place at the right time
I’ve planted you and watered you
Now you are mine
I brought you here, there’s no need to fear
You’re in the right place at the right time.

I direct footsteps of the righteous servant
I take you to a higher place
No weapon formed against you may prosper
You’re protected by my grace
Listen to me when I tell you what to do
I know the path that lies ahead
I know the plans I have for you are all good
If you just do what I have said.

You’ll come to know mw at the right time
Open your eyes and realize you’re mine
You’ll take my hand when you understand
That you’re in the right place at the tight time.

Susan Pulsifer (1998)
