Lord, I know that my choices have brought me here,
My prayer is that you will not give me what I deserve,
Please give me relief.
You can see my deep pain,
And the hurt that I have caused,
You know that I have turned away from sin,
You can see my deep anguish,
Over how I didn’t follow you,
When I should have known better.
Let me sleep,
Without waking in the morning’s early hours,
Anxious and wishing that I was dead.
My choice is to leave behind,
Those who don’t follow you,
Not because I stopped caring,
I want a God first approach to life,
It’s a much more merciful life,
That opens up more of God’s grace.
Those who choose to oppose you and me,
They have worn me out,
I will have to leave them to you God.
They will have to live with their choices,
Let them see what they have done,
Hit them in the face with it’s full impact,
So that they will turn to you.
