TITLE: LOST IN SILENCE

This is a poem I wrote to go with a piece of my art. The person has been drowning in the blackness of hurt, pain, depression, and are slowing reaching into the light with uplifted hands
LOST IN SILENCE

My soul was lost in silence
My feet were stuck in clay
My mouth was set against the Lord above
I found no other way

Pride was my clothing
Corruption took my mind
I prospered greatly in wicked deeds
I never knew my need

One day I passed a church
It seemed to beckon me inside
I fell down on my knees and cried
Do You even know I'm here
Do You even know I'm here

What do You want from me
I have nothing left to give
Then I heard a small voice say
I came to give you joy.

I'm here so you will know
the peace I left with you.
I'm here so you will know
I died for love of you.
I'm here so you would know
there is a plan for you.
I'm here to fulfill my Father's love
and His perfect plan.

In you there is hope
for those who only know failure
In you there is contentment
for those who only seek greed
In you the world will see
how I make all things new.
Your old is passed away,
a new babe in me you'll be.

You're offered today the gift of grace,
a pardon full and free
You're offered today a brand new life.
Accept or reject, the choice is yours
but this one thing please know.

I've counted all your tears,
and watched you run in fear.
There's not a time when you were hurt,
that I didn't see you through.
I made a way for you to escape,
grow and live to tell
That in this life, tho' filled with pain
in ME you will remain.
