The cry MY the heart
The Cry of the heart, The tear of the eye
Depression does start Though I think it’s not nigh.
I’m laughing and singing And praising the Lord
When all of the sudden My mind becomes torn.
I can find no reason, I can find no rhyme
I can’t even predict If there’ll be a next time.
The joy of the Lord it is my strength
But the truth be told Sometimes I am too weak
I know all the tools, I have Bible plans
Then I feel like a fool that is trying to stand.
It’s not on my own feet Upon which I stand
For I know and can see They are just sinking sand.
No words from a Sage, No songs from a poet
no silly do Dilly’s From memes that do show it
The cliches are so tired, The phrases so old
How I hate how I’m wired, How I hate this dark cold
I know this shall pass, I know it will end
But right in the moment for my life I do fend
I do not wish To take my own life
But I get so tired Of overwhelming strife
And then there’s the pain That no one can find
Just sad looks from the the ones that are kind
The loneliness bogs Me down to my knees
And I pray my dear God Deliver me please.
What is the thorn In the Flesh do I ask?
I don’t know that I’m up for this task!
I know that your glory will shine on me
The day that your face I will joyfully see.
The light of your face will break through all the dark
And the worth of these trials will be known in my heart.
But tonight, oh dear Jesus, please give me a sign
Please help me to know that you’ll hold me as thine.
I believe in you Lord and I trust that you’ll stay
And complete the work that you began on that day
It’s nothing of me that can do your good work
There’s no hope for me except in You, Lord
My heart it is struggling
my mind is confused
But I know I believe
And my trust is in you.
The darkness will cease, the pain has an end
As long as I believe, will my soul comprehend?
Oh Silent Night, oh distance song
Angels, please sing to me all the night long
Tell me of Jesus, tell me of he, who gave of his life that living I’d be
No pain is too great, of heart mind or soul
To equal the cross and that took its toll
You did that for me and I didn’t believe
But now that I do I can only receive
joy for my sorrow, peace for my pain
Love for my heartache, Grace for my shame
Truth has two edges, love has two sides
thy kingdom shall be in the sweet by-and-by
And when that day comes I will be ever thrilled
To stand in your presence sing to you still
So sing in the Darkness, laugh at the pain
For this is all Shadows of what I will gain!
No Darkness can take my salvation from me
no depression can Steal My Hope for to see
as it was in the beginning, is now and it shall be
World Without End ruled by God the almighty.
“The Lord does not give me rules, but He makes His standard very clear.
If my relationship to Him is that of love, I will do what He says without hesitation.
If I hesitate, it is because I love someone I have placed in competition with Him, namely, myself.” – from My Utmost for His highest
