“In the Darkness Again”
Lost again in the darkness,
I’ve wandered from Your light,
I’ve strayed from Your path
And now I’m trapped here.
Nothing makes sense anymore
When I leave Your way, O Lord,
If I seek peace outside of You
I’ll always be left disappointed.
You’ll find me anywhere,
You’ll call my name again
And I’ll see Your light
And feel Your presence.
I’m lost again when the world pulls me in,
I lose ground when I lose focus of You.
I’d stand strong if I weren’t so weak,
I’d keep fighting if I weren’t so tired.
The enemy whispers in a sweet voice
With tempting offers and half-truths,
The shiny chains hide future bondage,
The liar promises freedom from much.
God, find me where You found me before,
I’ll be back in the dark searching for light,
Looking for answers to my many questions,
Looking for the way out of this great darkness.
Tear down this veil over my eyes
And I’ll see the scales fall off and see
What meaningless things I’ve chased,
What lies I’ve believed told by the enemy.
Now I’m desperate in this darkness
And the liar comes to spout his lies,
Trying hard to drain me of hope,
Trying to wear me down, tear me down.
Tearing at the walls of my very heart,
Slithering around like a snake every day,
Always with the lies, always with the deceit,
It starts to look like this won’t end at all.
I know his desire’s to lead me to lose faith,
To see my faith waiver, to see it crumble;
I know the devil wants me to despair,
To fall to pieces, to lose all hope and die.
But it won’t go the way the devil wants,
I see through his lies and half-truths,
I cling to the living Truth at all costs,
I won’t fall into despair, God help me.
I seek the light in this thick darkness,
I hear Your truth drown out the lies,
My heart looks to You now, Lord,
I won’t drown in despair, God help me.
I won’t be left in this darkness to perish,
You’ll hear the cries of my soul and answer,
You’ll shine Your great light, dissipate the darkness
And pull me out from this place I’ve been trapped in.
No, I won’t be another victim,
You alone have saved me, Lord,
Your light replaces my darkness,
I’m walking in Your light again.
Stay by my side through everything,
I place my life in Your caring hands,
You’re my first love, my Judge and Savior,
You’re all I truly want and need, my God.
My Savior, my Shepherd, light of my life,
My love and hope, my strength and song,
My Redeemer, my Rescuer, the only true God,
I will live and love You, You’ll lead me home.
