The crossroad prayer
Wont you carry me through this darkness, Lord,
won't you flood me with your light?
Won't you guide me along this narrow road,
won't you show me what is right?
Won't you scratch my hardened surface,
won't you feel my inner need?
Won't you staunch the flow of my emotional bleed?
Won't you wrap your loving arms around me,
won't you hold me in your embrace?
Won’t you take away your wrath Lord,
Won’t you shower me with grace?
Won’t you shine your face upon me
Won’t you hear my distress call?
Won't you send a host of angels to gently break my fall?
Won’t you see me as I stand here, before your holy rood,
Won’t you justify me, let me be renewed?
Won’t you see my indecision, make for me my choice,
Won’t you hear my prayer dear Father, let my heart rejoice?
Won’t you be the resting place for this my weary load,
Won’t you determine my direction at this crucial crossroad?
