I live for hope within my burdened soul,
I cannot force my thoughts to sway,
I cannot make my feelings go away,
I have no control.
I do not lean on my own understanding,
I wait for the burden to lift,
I wish for God's ultimate gift,
I relinquish to God all demanding.
I rest in the power of His love,
I stop my struggling within,
I wait for Him, my Lord, my Friend,
He will guide me from above.
