Plea for Mercy

storm-clouds

Lord, in your anger
do not turn your back on me!
I feel so alone.

Have mercy on me!

How much longer, Lord?
I am tired to the bone.
My soul’s in despair.

Have mercy on me!

Lord, come rescue me!
I’m drowning in my troubles!
Throw me a lifeline!

Have mercy on me!

My eyes are burning.
My bed is drenched in my tears.
Come, lift my burden!

Have mercy on me!

You hear my anguish;
rushing in you sweep me up
into your safe arms.

You have mercy on me.
