"Imagination" as written by and Alexander Benjamin/oden Richbourg....
I need to be reminded of who I was
When I took that first step out the door
All I said now follows me around
I'm reminded I'm not like that anymore

I uprooted and miles behind me
Are the faces and the home I love
You've brought to my attention
I'm slowly changing and becoming what I wanted to stop

Isn't that just like a finite mind
Setting out with such righteous indignation
But now I'm at Your feet
Could You look at me with some imagination

The bush before me, I slip my sandals off
I only stopped to look
In the depths of the sea, in the midst of a great storm
I run, I run from You

So remind me why You woke me up
And why You wake me every morn
The staff in my hand
Held in by Your love
Just stay close, stay close

Because I know my own mind
I set out with righteous indignation
But when I'm at Your feet
Please look at me with some imagination

    General CommentTo me, the artist is speaking of a journey -- physical, spiritual, emotional, perhaps all three -- she has been uprooted, she has taken "that first step out the door." But somewhere along the way she's gone astray, taken a detour off the path she wanted to follow. "I only stopped to look." Now she's asking God for forgiveness and understanding, and maybe a way back on her road. The chorus speaks the most strongly for this -- "Isn't that just like a finite mind? / Setting out with such righteous indignation / But now I'm at your feet / Could you look at me with some imagination?" She's asking God to look at her with imagination, to look at how far she's come and where she might yet go.

    Even though we, as human beings, make mistakes and screw up, we can come to the feet of God and he will "look at us with imagination."
