A Prayer in the Darkness


Dim seems thy light

Casting shadows of fear

In the depths of my heart

Small seems thy might

I find it nowhere near

Futile in my raging sea


My eyes grow weary in darkness

Daily dread breaks my jar of clay

Abba, help me see the day

Let your love save this mess


Make your staff light a way

Your rod slay madness away

Bring the sunshine in to sing

With your goodness embracing


The weak and broken

You have not forsaken

You have always been there

By your will and your care


Be gracious, O God

In my weakness

Be glorified, O God

Even in my sadness
