My mind’s in troubled seas
somber waters erode the earth from beneath my feet
pulling me further into the dark
these waves don’t let me embark
on my journey back to lightfilled hope
throw me these waters on sharp-edged stones
on my soul waves of uncertainity violently crash
overwhelming and sharp as they slash
my heart into numerous shards
leaving on me deep crimson scars

Oh God
your light is my only guide
save me from getting dragged deeper into the night
please give warmth of hope to my eyes
save me from these dark waters cold as ice
like a lighthouse guides a ship
please lead me to contentment and bliss
enlighten my life bless me with mercy divine
please guide me home to peace of mind
