My weakened State

As the waves rush over
	crashing down whatever is in its path
So do the things of this world
	crash down, bruising and tearing my life

I struggle to get to calmer waters
	only to be drug out again with the tide
Weak I grow with each attempt
	growing so tired, my body becomes limp

Then like a mighty RAGE beneath me
	I am thrown to shore where it is safe
My body battered and torn by the experience
	shaky and trembling, I lay there to rest

Through the bleak coldness of the night
	shelter is given me, by what I see not
Humbly I accept it, gratefully I cherish it
	like a warm blanket made just for me

As the sun rises, and the sand warms
	life returns to my soul and body
Strength builds ... and hunger increases
	I set out looking to satisfy my being

My hunger is not for food of this world
	it seeks a more gratifying feast not found here
No, not anywhere of this world, but in the WORD
	there my spirit feeds and replenishes my soul 

O’ Lord, for if you had not raised me from the depths
	I would have surely perished
Your loving arm reached down and pushed me to safety
	Your love called life back to my body

In you I live, through you I love
	by your hand I wish to serve
With you I walk, and because of you I am
	Thank you, Lord, thank you
