My heart cries out to you, oh God
I know that you can hear
But in the silence, I feel lost
Longing for an answer near
I long to find my way once more,
My spirit is weary, my soul unsure,
Lost, confused, and torn by doubts galore,
Longing for guidance from God to restore.
My mind is muddled, doubts arise
I'm uncertain of my way
I want to find success and rise
But feel stuck in place today
My heart is filled with purpose strong,
To serve others and make a change.
But I wonder if my efforts long
Have been in futile vain.
I've given all I have to give,
My family, my home, my soul.
But still I struggle, still I live
Pursuing a lofty ambition.
I want to move ahead with you
But need to know the way
Please show me what I'm meant to do
And be with me each day.
Oh God, I pray, hear my plea,
And show me where to set my sights.
Please speak to me, my heart to fill
And show me where to go.
For though I may not see the way,
I trust that you will lead.
And I will follow, day by day,
In faith, and love, and need.
