Lord, I look to you with tears in my eyes,
While everything in me withers and dies.
With pain, I open my heart and confess
The feelings of remorse that strongly impress
My heart and my soul and threaten to take
My life and my spirit.
I watch as they break.
I’m helpless and alone in my misery, I say.
I don’t think I can make it another day.
I know that whatever I promise to do,
The present and future must be left up to you.
I’ve tried and I’ve done all that I can do now,
As I pray that you’ll hear me and help me somehow.
Please give me strength to follow the way
Back to you and my faith,
Where I know I must stay.
In repentance, I’ve learned that your presence is near.
I can almost reach out and grasp your hands here.
My heart and my soul, you’ve overtaken,
As past sins have finally been long forsaken.
Now I can watch your loving arms open wide
To welcome me enter safely inside
To join the others who’ve sacrificed much
So their lives can be changed
By your miracle touch.
