Lord, must I wander through this desert forever?
It seems there is no end in sight,
So much desolation and unsatisfaction,
I can barely see a glimmer of light,
Oh Lord, have You given up on me?
Has my selfish and slothful behavior brought You to disgust?
I cry out for Your grace and mercy,
Dear Lord, Your forgiveness is a must.
I deeply desire to have Your presence near,
Not hearing or feeling You, my biggest fear,
Agony, brokenness, utter despair,
Send the rain Lord, this is my prayer.
Send the rain to pour upon this barren land,
Saturate this vessel by Your wonder working hand.
The tears have flown ‘til I can cry no more,
How much of this parchedness must I endure?
Give me the ability to stay focused on You,
‘Til this dreadful experience is finally through,
‘Til Your refreshing rain penetrates down deep within,
And when Your blessed anointing overflows once again.
Send the rain. Please Lord, send the rain!
