I'm Clinging

Iím clinging

Lord, You forewarned me,
Years ago You said,
Confusion and mayhem were coming
Where angels fear to tread;
But Lord, you never said,
That it was hell Iíd have to face
In that space where angels fear to tread.

Lord, You gave me advice,
You told me what to do,
When the craziness arrived,
As You said it had to; and what I must do:
Simply cling to You;
But my grip is human Lord, and not so strong,
And bit by bit, Iím slipping Lord, slowly away from You.

I promise Lord, Iím trying
To keep clinging on to You,
But the seams are all tearing
And the fabric around me too.
My fingers are tiring Lord, You know itís true,
This body is sick and dying Lord,
I donít know how to see this through.

The carís motor wants to stop
As the cogs begin to jar
Without a working engine Lord,
You know I canít go far.
My Lord of Love, I know You Are,
But the Ferris Wheel chains are breaking,
The wood and nails are rusting here, underneath Your star.

The oven thatís made for heating Lord,
Sits broken and cold.
The food there to eat Lord,
Was poisoned before it was sold.
Lord, Iím clinging to each word You told
As my ship sinks with this hole;
Lord, please be true; please keep Your promises of old.

The radio is down Lord;
Electricity is off; batteries are dead,
As the family goes through divorce,
Lord, Iím clinging to what You said.
Your word Lord, itís what Iíve read
Hugging Your promises as the pier crumbles beneath,
As I fall to drown, left on a seabed.

No warmth because the heating broke,
And fatigue pains my sight,
Disorientation causes accidents Lord,
As I soothe the dogís bite.
Iím slipping Lord, as I loose my might,
Iím clinging to the last beam of light;
Lord, please, help me get through the nightÖ

Wow - I can feel the desperation and hopelessness in here - but the tinge of hope. Very powerful.
