As i cry, my eyes are opened,
a memory of you, burns inside my soul.
I drop to my knee's, your truth surrounds me,
for in my sorrow, again I am lost.
My heart fills with your voice,
even through my silence.
I stand again, to see your mercy,
to rise over, all that I am.
The faith you gave me, is my only hope,
as it again, shines through my darkness.
Your forgiveness, is my hearts song,
your spirit moves in me, as I lift my burdens.
With your power from above, I can stand,
to be restored, your joy I find.
I search my soul, for your peace,
finding forever, your unconditional love.
Your blood is my shield, a blessing to me,
for I have done nothing, to deserve your grace.
So I am thankful, my life is yours,
your words I cherish, your love I embrace.
