I am silent and still,
trying to listen to you…
Hoping to hear you speak to my heart…
Wishing I was flawless, perfect and pure,
Wondering what life trials I’m destined to endure.
Constant effort… Constant thirst…
Constantly striving to put you first.
Feeling unsettled, like something is not right,
It is a spiritual war and I’m ready to fight.
Calm my spirit Lord, point to me the right direction,
Hold me in your hands Lord, so to you I remain true,
Clean me, hold me,
Lead me away from the darkness of death.
