Help me trust you God, I don't want to falter. Though circumstances are grim and discouraging Evil must not win, help me be encouraging. Help me trust you God, I don't want to falter.
Let your love for all humanity be mine, may I choose to love. Even in the midst of the world filled with hate, I choose your love may it not be late, Let your love for all humanity be mine, may I choose to love.
Set me firmly on Your path, I believe in Your way. As even basic decency is lost in this place, Strengthen me for Your pace, Set me firmly on Your path, I believe in Your way.
O God, may I be found as true, faithful to You. May I know when and how to fight for Your way, Being sure if I have anger it is righteous each day, O God, may I be found as true, faithful to You.
Father, may my heart always believe in You first. Even as it appears evil is winning after all, Remind me of Your plan since Adam and Eve's fall, Father, may my heart always believe in You first.
Woke today and knew pretend had to be over,
No more escapes into my imagination,
No more useless wishes of rescue
Regardless of its orientation,
This escape hatch has to firmly close.
Lord, yes, the Lord Himself knows the truth,
He could choose to return the woman in me,
He could restore all the bits and pieces,
Yet He has said, "No," and let me be
And I watch leftover memories flow away.
Still stumbled through my day tripping over His call,
My wheels stuck between disobedience and right,
My wheels losing traction getting to the altar
Then I could no more delay or fight,
Today I have to banish you walking away in my mind.
There are many tears I cannot yet cry
Losses I cannot begin to understand
But the innocent are safe and protected,
No innocent blood shed by or on my hands,
Love unspoken, deeds undone, freedom gained by incarceration.
