To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh

What is my hope in this life?
Without You, under the skies, there’s only hell.
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Rejections, taunts, helplessness, all kinds of strife,
People, homes, values, all things in peril,
What is my hope in this life?

You expose my heart to tempests; I cry
In deep anguish, I beseech and kneel -
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Stir my heart to seek You; let not my spirit dry,
For with your absence in this tough duel -
What is my hope in this life?

My little mind cannot equal your wisdom so high,
Amid confusion I am a wondering, wandering fool,
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Helping grace and love you will abundantly supply;
Under the heavens - will be glory eternal.
What is my hope in this life -
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

**Inspiration from Romans 8:35-39 "...Nothing can separate us from the Love 
of God..."

This poem is offered to the people of Iraq ( the Yazidis and other minorities) 
going through persecution. Let us pray  that they may have the strength to 
face all the adversities confronting them as God envelops them with His 
immense love and mercy.
