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

Abba_1
