In living I have not learned life
And so it goes as I fall down
In dying I have not learned death
And so beneath my tears I drown.
Lord Jesus please forgive my sins
And make me walk with thee
My stubborn and deceitful heart
Is thrashing in the sea.
I can’t ignore the pain inside
And yet when I to sin do run
My pains they grow and multiply
And I feel all alone.
In weakness do I long for death
In fear I wish to cease my pain
Though you have promised happy breath
I scarce believe the storm in rain.
My little faith is what I have
And nothing do I care to bring
My righteousness a filthy rag
And I have lost the heart to sing.
Lord do not delay.
