Oh Lord, it’s too dark to see
‘Oh Lord it’s too dark too dark to see’… ‘I can’t take it anymore’.
Cannot you see what these last few years have done to me?”
The last four years I have seen tempest after tempest without relief.
Pray tell dear Lord, what did I do, or not do which has brought this burden unto me.?
For dark clouds lie like a heavy fog obliterating the light which I know surely shines.
Whispers of darkness call unto me in the night; demons of darkness seek my mind.
Impending doom slithers’ like a serpent, calling, oh calling through the night.
I seek you dear Lord, yet I feel so alone; you said you would never leave or forsake me…
THEN WHY DO I FEEL SO ALONE?
On broken and bloody feet I walk the path formed on a life of uncertainty.
First you took my wife with cancer, then I too find that cancer befalls this little man called me.
Oh Lord, I tell you now on bruised and bloody knees…
Where once there was sunshine; now it is only darkness that follows me.
Pray tell dear Lord…why, oh why do you allow this darkness to follow me around?
So many times since these trials began that I have wished that I were dead.
It would have been so easy; just the soft click of the chamber and I too would be in the
Oh Lord…it is still too dark to see…say goodnight Gracie for we have only and always
sought the light.
