Searching for peace in darkest of places Your mind can’t rest, only races Searching for love in strangers you meet Finding heartaches are all that it reaps Searching for ways to fill your time Wanting your life to be defined More hours spent at the workplace Trying to fill that empty space Searching for a way to erase your past How long will the guilt haunt and last A drop of affection, only a trace Tears constantly streaming down your face Sleepless nights you toss and turn Only to rest, your body yearns Your fears follow, throughout the day If only, you could chase them away Searching for joy in silver and gold Only sadness, your heart bestows Depression slowly creeps within As your soul drowns in sin To look up, we must hit rock bottom A plea for our sins to be forgotten A touch of God’s Amazing Grace Our sorrow, fears and strife replaced Contentment you will not find in a world so lost Only in He, who bore the cross Fall to your knees, bow your head Welcome to the living among the dead
