Oh my soul, I’m lost in the abyss of despair
Enveloped by the gloom, all hope beyond repair
Injustice and malice, life is a cruel snare
Everything is lost, with no reason to care.
Oh, dear soul, do not despair, for God is always near
Enveloping you with love, and wiping away each tear
Injustice and malice may exist, but He's a refuge strong and clear
Life may be tough, but in His care, you need not fear.
Where is a glimmer of hope, beyond this darkened door?
Perseverance has vanished, effort is no more
Purpose is shattered, scattered on the floor
Christ’s the source of hope, with a light through the Door
His mercy and grace, your spirit can restore
With His strength, perseverance can once again soar
Your purpose in life, He'll reveal and much more.
Chains of sorrow bind me, the key long forgotten
The wilderness I wander, alone and downtrodden
Hopelessness my garment, my soul a begotten.
Your mind is a temple, a dwelling place for the divine
Chains of sorrow, He'll break, and freedom you'll find
In the wilderness, you're never alone, with Him by your side
Hopelessness He'll replace, with joy and peace to reside.
The dawn will not bring relief, but only more dismay
Darkness consumes my soul, with each passing day
In this endless abyss, my spirit will forever stay.
The horizon holds a promise, with God’s Word to guide your way
His grace will bring relief, and joy that will always stay
Darkness cannot overcome, with His Word that leads the way
In Christ, you'll find life abundant, forever and always to stay.
