Lord, I have been crippled and unable to walk I Can't Go On...

2 Corinthians 12:9

336x280:

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

I opened my eyes and suddenly, I just wanted to let go,
It didn't matter that I was alive, able and rational, I was feeling small, so low.
I kept on praying, asking, begging and did a little bit more,
But I was giving my hopes up so many times, I could no longer stand tall.

Going on, going through and going by is how I try to live everyday,
Battling urges of dissapointments with a full heart whatever comes my way.
But the test seems to be never-ending, it follows me like a shadow day and night,
Lord, I can't go on anymore, I no longer know how to fight.

Lord, I have been crippled and unable to walk Your path, I seek forgiveness,
The horizon looks so far away, the lights dissapearing creates in me a mess.
I burke every sign of redemption and freedom from my strife,
Because I no longer want to believe certain things in my life.

Despite and inspite of, a renewed heart You want for me,
With yet one more chance of attempt, in everything, I will search for Thee.
I say a prayer, Lord, bestow upon me Your grace,
I don't wanna hide mine anymore, O God, I beg, please show me Your face.
