No joy, no peace, no laughter,
Fear was part of my daily life,
Rape and abuse was the daily norm,
Since I can remember I longed for You,
I searched, I prayed, I cried, I read,
All about You Lord, all about You,
Still no relief, no answer, no safety,
The bitterness and hate in my heart grew
Stronger and stronger everyday,
Along with that unforgiveness filled my heart,
It fed me with an uncontrollable anger,
Thoughts of revenge was all I could think about
All my thoughts wanted to shout
But how do I do it, I am just a child
With no power, no will, no way out
Helpless, loveless, angry, filled with hate,
I wanted to turn to You and enter the Gate,
But if my parents didn’t want me,
What made me think that You will love me,
Still, I longed for You, I wanted to fit in
Maybe Heaven will have a place for me
Maybe I will be accepted by Thee,
And maybe I will be a human being.
Once I gave you my heart, everything
You came and filled me with love,
Your gentleness amazed me,
Your sweetness surrounded me.
Now I am Yours, I belong to the King
I am a child of God,
To You I bring,
All my pain and suffering
And peace fills my heart,
Your sweet Spirit takes control,
And I know, that nothing can harm me now,
For You are my Daddy, You are in control.
Gone is the hate, the bitterness, the danger,
Unforgiveness fled before forgiveness,
I am surrounded by love and peace,
My Daddy takes care of me.
Still I live with a desire,
That they must be brought to justice,
Am I now playing with fire?
I want them to pay for hurting me, how can they just walk away free?
Lord, dear Lord, Help me please,
I don’t want to burn
I want some peace in return
I want to be strong, I want to be free
Revenge is a strong word, filled with anger
How do I overcome this and be the victor
I need you more than ever,
I need to be free from all the anger.
Let Your Sweet and Gentle Spirit flow
Let it come and make me whole
Set me free to be as sweet as Thee,
Fill me with Your loving kindness, Lord let it flow.
I pray for your forgiveness,
Take this anger and thoughts of revenge,
Fill my mind; fill me with love, sweet love
I pray this from Thee.
