Longing for Clear
A cloud of muddy water crowds me here
I see, but I can't get to the water that's clear.
It's on the other side, but I'm lost in my fear.
But I pray God would come and hold me near.
I wander like a fish being blown down stream
Going through life without making a gleam.
Going through life without a seam
In need of a never ending support beam.
I imagine what could be my fate
Living in this world of hate.
Hoping one day to find Heaven's gate
A day for which I cannot wait.
Hoping the road would open for me
Open up so I could finally see
See the world where I want to be
Where I can finally feel like I'm free.
Through the woods I draw my bow
Stepping through but with no place to go.
Looking to see how I can grow
Into the person I one day wish to know.
Wandering into the open space
Hoping for a new time and place
Hoping for a change of pace
Hoping God would look upon my troubled face.
I bow to pray as I close my eyes
Pray for God to clear the skies
Clear them and save me from my demise
So above these afflictions I may rise.
Though I deserve your condemnation
Your love flows with an open invitation
Finally I've had a revelation
To accept you, the Lord of all creation
