The pressure is on, There’s choices to make. Hope seems to be gone, Which way should I take?
What will be next? What does the future hold? What was warm and inviting, Has now become cold.
It seems all is different, Not like it used to be. I never know what to expect, I never know what I’ll see.
On my own I can’t go on, By my own strength I can’t stay strong. I feel as though I am misplaced, Unsure as to where I belong.
The stress is unbearable, The days seem to grow longer. My heart is yearning, With an unsatisfied hunger.
My hands try to grasp, In the dark I work to find my way. There’s questions I have to ask, Things I feel I need to say.
Is there any to listen, Who understands what I speak? Does anyone have the answers To the questions that I seek?
Is there any who is able to satisfy this hunger I hold? Who can fill my heart with content, where the world and it’s darkness no longer have control?
I’ve been held in the chains of sin and regret, In darkness I’ve given up, Saying, “I can’t be perfect.”
So why even try? What hope does it bring? What life does it give? While I’m still the same being?
A small voice in the distance, Starts to come to my ear, It gradually grows as I run to draw near,
I know somethings there, There really is someone who cares,
I’m longing for help, hope is starting to grow, The small light that I see is starting to show,
There’s a way to be free, A way to let go, Of this weight on my shoulders, There really is, I just know!
There’s One who wants me, Who loves me and cares, There’s One who calls me, Who has a gift that He shares,
To all who will except, And run towards the One, Who holds the light, The Father, Spirit, and Son.
The straight path can be seen, I know my life can be made clean,
I can have a relationship with One I’ve never had before, There’s a King who is asking, and waiting, if only I go to open the door.
He is strong, He is wise, He knows beginning and end, He’s the Creator, the Counselor, We are his bride, He is our Friend.
