But I am afflicted and needy: make haste unto me, O God. Thou art my help and my deliverer: O Jehovah, make no delay.
If I stood before
Would I ask thee for the strength of ten?
Knowing there would yet be a task unfinished
And what then?
The strength of Forty?
Days then would still be full and yet empty

My legs are buckling Hear the cry of my soul
Answer my petition open heaven
Make me whole
I am only one
Even you in all your sufficiency you are three
You have angels ministering to each and every need
What of Me?
Show me Lord
Your power your integrity your truth Your life your way
Then and only then will my heart not falter my pulse not weaken
What would I say?
Stood before you
Longing for your touch your peace without enmity, without malice
Would thee not take me into thy hand and love me hold me
As thy chalice
