I awaken, yet darkness remains.
Tormented and discouraged, I cry out,
“Lord, where are You?”
I search familiar places,
Yet, happiness eludes me
And my heart sags, soaked in sorrow.
Life’s trials and its senseless inhumanity
Weigh upon my soul,
And I wonder,
“Will my spirit ever again take flight?”
Overcome, I fall before You,
My eyes blinded with tears
As I call out Your name.
In You, Lord, I will trust,
Though the times give no reason.
My heart shall once again sing and be glad.
Inspired by Psalm 13.
