Lord, Let Me Rise

Lord, let me rise above this mess Of too much toil and ugliness All around this world I see Lost and lonely souls like me… Struggling, striving, digging, diving Deep into memories long path; Lord, show me the Way Where loveliness lay High above trees and grass. Give me a sign I’m Meant to climb From the valley down below; To that place within where Love begins And seeds begin to grow.
