I stand on the edge of despair

Eyes cast down

I gave up sometimes

Fearing I might not make it

Yet I keep holding on

Each day

I cry

Deep dark tears

Emptying my soul

I stumbled, falling, grasping

I keep holding on

I stand in the shadows

And there

I cried

My face masking

The pain that ripped at my heart

Deep, dark pain

Filling my soul with emptiness

I tried to remember a scripture

I once learned

The Lord is

My Shepard I shall not want

He made me

To lie down in green pastures

He restores my soul

I felt hope

Stirring within me

So I hold on

I knelt

Eyes to the ground

Praying, Seeking,

And there on my knees

He restores my soul

He refresh my mind

I cling to Him

And with a heart of love

He sets me free

I am crying now

But there’s no pain

No sorrow, no doubt

Only tears of Joy

I’m redeemed

Lifted up

I’ve found comfort

I’m free

To rest in His arms

Now I knelt

Eyes lifted towards heaven

And with a shout of victory

I know I’ve been forgiven

I rejoice in His presence

I step fourth in faith

And hope and love©
