the world within me

Prayer

Prayer
You know what I hide in my heart
A song that I hope to sing
But it so despises the Lord I claim to love
That my heart doesnít ring

You know what I long to say
But my mind tells me fall away
And my soul deep inside fading off
Weariness, deadened as I scoff

I lift these sorrows lift these longings
My friends are crying their hearts out
Though I see not what is within
Inside I scream and I shout

I lift these prayers lift these voices
Wishing all to yield to thee
But my heart pulls and tugs away
Refusing ever to be free

I lift this moment lift this day
Where Iím seated in the sand
Wish itíd wash the memories
That I hardly understand

I lift these people love them so
And wish Iíd love them more
But in my heart Iím crying out
The aching wound the sore

I lift myself a helpless creature
Dying day by day
Kill me Lord to all my sins
And take my breath away

The beauty of redeeming love
The greatness of a king
The wonder of grace so deep
And love so amazing

The mountains high the song again
On repeat the praise
And let me hear its joyous tune
All of my fleeting days

The prophets tell of your great love
The psalmists sings again
And when I fall please lift my eyes
To see beyond the pain

I cannot help but throw this red
Back at your shining face
And how could I this cruel thing
Ever deserve your grace

But grace and grace is undeserved
Unmerited in every name
But you oh Lord took away
My hideous sin and shame

Dry their tears and mend them whole
Their hearts and mine so broken
In this world where I grow cold
And feel my soul is fallen

The hurt and sorrow
The stream the flood
Heal this day
With your blood

What can I pray Lord
My heart aches
But soon enough
I know it wakes

And to another mournful day
Carried by routine
I long to pray when my heart rebels
Remind of your loveís ravine
