Just when I thought the best of my life was over
And all my hopes and dreams had all fallen away.
Just as my heart gave into the years of sorrow
Because I had grown tired and weary with each passing day.
Just when it seemed that nothing else mattered
And I was adrift alone on a raging sea.
Just when the joy of life had completely left me
And I was too weak to carry on faithfully.
Suddenly, I found myself reaching for Heaven
With my hands raised high, above my head.
I reached out for God and He reached down for me.
The tears started falling and I began desperately to pray…
Oh God, forgive me for letting go of you.
Oh God, please lift me out of this deep and painful sorrow.
Oh God, please restore in me the faith I once knew.
Oh God, please give me strength to face my tomorrows.
