I need your hope and your power;
I need to take shelter in your strong tower.
Your powerful arms and warming light;
can banish the darkness and defeat the night.
You will not burden me with more than I can bare;
I just need to feel as if you are really there.
I wonder how much more I can take;
before I keeping bending and before I break.
My heart is stretched and almost numb;
I often wonder when at last, peace will come.
Even as these words I write;
I know you’re there, just out of sight.
I feel your spirit ease my sorrow;
without your love I would fear the morrow.
Just comfort me Lord as only you can;
show me mercy, show me the promised land.
