Hear my voice Lord, as I cry out to You
Hear the weeping from within my heart
Hear the timeless anguish crippling me
From my beginnings yes from the start

I have found Lord as I lived in this world
True salvation only comes from Your Hand
And right now from me, it seems far away
From right here Lord, where I now stand

Please, Lord, do not turn Your back on me
Always be my shepherd and my heart lead
For I long for freedom from my sinful flesh
Because much closer to You I long to be

Hear the dire cry Lord of a sinner born
Who would fall low in his life each day
Severely blinded by his own selfishness
One who alone could never find his way

I pray from my heart’s deepest places
Where no one else in this world can see
I cried out humbly with my heart open
Please come to me Lord and rescue me

Never let me be lost to this world’s evil
As they tempt me with their sinful pleasures
For they will seek to strike my flesh daily
Attempting to keep me from my true treasure

Let me not fall into a pit of desolation
Lifting me upward from its drowning pool
Set my feet on Your solid foundation Lord
As my heart and life will only belong to You.
