TO YOU AND YOUR GIFT… a Christian song

Slipping through crevices and cracks in my life

How do I make one more day

Rolling with punches

While holding on tight

It’s time I kneel down and pray

~~~

Father, won’t you help me

I’ve fallen again

Somehow, I veered off the road

To wrestle with judgement

And all – to what end

It’s not how to live – So, I’m told

Forgive me, again, as the web that I weave

Takes me further and further off-pace

In this prayer I lift

To You and Your Gift

Knowing, I’m not alone in this race

~~~

Failing at marriage

And failing with friends

Perhaps this old mirror

Is lying again

Taking me down

The old devil’s at hand

Arresting my virtue

Destroying this man

~~~

But, I have a weapon

And Satan’s aware

Though trying to con-fuse my way

Forgiveness and loving

Without this despair

Will set this road again – straight

~~~

Father, won’t you help me

I’ve fallen again

Somehow, I veered off the road

To wrestle with judgement

And all – to what end

It’s not how to live – So, I’m told

Forgive me, again, as the web that I weave

Takes me further and further off-pace

In this prayer I lift

To You and Your Gift

Knowing, I’m not alone in this race

In this prayer I lift

To You and Your Gift

Knowing, I’m not alone in this race
