Lord how I've strayed,
I've fallen in my ways,
avoided you,
intentionally kept from your grace.
I've been so ashamed,
so afraid of the path that I'm walking down,
wondering if I will keep going,
falling deeper in this place.
I've fought so hard to hide my fear,
keep my tears at bay.
Kept a smile on my face,
hiding the secrets that my eyes portray.
I feel the despair in my body,
the nightmares in my sleep,
my steps are becoming slower each day,
my indecency can't be hidden away.
As my weakness becomes shown,
I must sit down and acknowledge the truth,
Lord how I've strayed,
this world is destroying me deep within.
Please direct me back to you,
light my lost ways.
