December 1985

 

I must sing your song

it strains at every cord

I try so hard to set it free

let it fly and have its course

but

I lack the courage

ignore my faith

and somehow quell the storm

 

oh great Lord and friend

in this world of dark and drab

I try to shine your light

and yet I close my eyes

so I too live in night

forgive me Lord and give me strength

to face the earth in its wild career

and proclaim my love for you

without fear

let me love, Lord

with all my heart

this world you died to save

help me Lord to live the truth

help me Lord and give me life
