How could I ever imagine,
that I would cope without praying?
How could I keep going
unless I knew
that I could return my heart to you
and soak my darkness in your light?
Pour your mercy into my madness
and your Spirit into my will,
and make me know
in my heart as well as my head
that only in you
am I found, forgiven and free.
Angela Ashwin, English author and compiler of
When the righteous cry for help,
the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
