Lord, hear my prayer

My prayer remains the same

I only want to hear you, Lord

My prayer remains the same

I only want to see you, Lord

My heart is vacant

Waiting for you to move in

My soul is crying out

Waiting for you to wipe a tear

My hands have turned so cold

Alienated from your touch

My heart was once soft clay

Waiting for your artistry

But life has hardened it’s edges

Harder to keep it beating now

The warm and ambient light

That cloaked me in your protection

Burnt out with the sun

The sky dark and absent of your love

I seek you in this darkness

I light a candle for you

So my prayer remains the same

I only want to hear you, Lord

My prayer remains the same

I only want to see you, Lord

Fill my cup with your goodness

I shall drink only of your will for me

Empty my garden of all its shame

And let forgiveness flourish

Lord, hear my prayer
