MY SHEPHERD.

In this world of tangled darkness,
Where there SEEMS to be no light...
Can I look to You for Guidance?
Will You Lead me on The Path that's right?

Scratched and Bruised from clinging brambles,
As I seek the light of day...
Trying vainly, paths already covered,
Realizing I have 'feet of clay'!

Was it pride that caused this havoc?
Thinking that I was answering Your Call?
Better to have never started...
If I caused someone else to fall?

Bogs and pits attempt to claim me,
Suck me in, or swallow me whole!
You are all I want to share with them,
Each and every tortured soul!

Shadows cast their darkness over me,
Pointing out how wrong I am...
Fear its grip seeks to tighten,
Tears are frozen behind a dam!

All at once my strength has left me,
Everything I had is given out!
Panic binds me captive, 
"Help me!"  Is my strangled shout!

"Here I Am!  Let Me Enfold you,
 In My Arms of Love, let Me Carry you through!
 See, there is nothing to hold you,
 You are My Lamb, I'll NEVER desert you!"
