Hear what we’re pray-ing Lord in faith-ful-ness
Answer our hearts’ concerns in right-eous-ness
Don’t judge us harshly, for no case can stand,
No one is righteous, we should all be canned.
We’ve been pursued by foulest enemies
Who seek to crush our lives and justice freeze..
Therefore our spirit faint, and hearts are weak,
Sitting in darkness where we cannot speak.
When we look back upon the days of old
All of the things you’ve done and stories told
We stretch our hands to you in hope and faith
Our souls are thirsting in these trying days.
Answer us quickly, Lord, our spirits fail.
Without your face to see our souls would wail.
Morning by morning show us how to go.
For it’s to you we each lift up a soul.
Teach us to do your will, for you are God
Lead us along the path the righteous trod.
Though all around us there is constant strife
We are your servants, Lord; preserve our lives.
