I let you hurt me and take my very life
From within to a humbler place;
Now I am broken more, in need of a doctor,
And the ACCEPTANCE and resigning spiritual grace
That will lead me again to holy communion
And a prayer for the pain of this cross
Which I hope will come too with a blessing
To replace what seems now such a loss.
Understanding is the focus most precious
Yet the commodity that cannot be seen
When the blindness and the SADNESS is upon me
And the experience so new and so green.
Help me pray!
Help me past all my ANGER.
Keep me loving and open to all.
Let me walk to the gallows or through the fire of the battle
With my soul still in the Spirit standing tall.
Only You, God of Life, can accomplish
What we creatures quickly lose in the trial
Just as long as we stay close to Your assurance
And not lose faith in the BARGAINING or the DENIAL.
