Your promises remain but my heart's unsure.
Uncertain of the purpose of my life anymore.
Everything I do feels like such a waste.
Is there a reason that I'm still in this place?
You say this pain will make me stronger,
But I wonder if it must go on any longer.
Life is hard when you feel so blind
And it brings so many troubles I find.
I want to trust you, but it's so hard
To let go of it all and let down my guard
But it doesn't feel as though it can get any better.
As I live weighed down by this constraining fetter.
A weight that carries all my sin
And holds back all my pain within.
And what lays the anguish upon my face
Lord, wash it away into a sea of grace.
Help me see the battle is won
And capture my sin on the cross with your son.
Pick up my head and let my heart see
That you, my God, died for me.
Help me see the only love
The love that waits with a home above
Satisfy my heart, my mind, and soul.
In your presence, LORD, make me whole.
It scares me not knowing what tomorrow will bring.
But I know you'll be there through everything.
I am surely scared but I know deep inside
That with you, my God, there is no need to hide.
So here I am, on my knees.
Praying, Oh Lord, you will come to me.
Showing me, God, all that I can be
And that through the body of Christ, I am set free.
