My eyes weep with the tears of the weary.
My works for You crumble as dust through my fingers – worthless.
I cry out for understanding yet peace and comfort elude me.
My heart is torn within me as I strive to serve you faithfully and fail again.
O LORD, draw me nigh unto You.
Embrace me in Your everlasting arms.
Strengthen and uplift me that I may bring You glory and praise Your Name.
As the deer pants for the water, LORD
So my soul longs for You.
And You are there.
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Your Word consoles me and you encourage me.
Rejoice in the Lord, always, and again I say rejoice.
