Clouds Of Trouble
Along the horizon they gathered
Drifting closer, becoming darker
A light rain began that soon became a deluge
Thunderous clouds surround me
Pouring one affliction after another
Down upon my life
The waters of trouble keep rising
Until it seems I may soon succumb
The battle has been so long
The darts thrown my way so very painful
I reach out seeking a kind hand
And find deception behind
The illusion of compassion
I am floundering in the torrent
Desperately seeking someone, anyone
To hold out loving arms to embrace me
The troubled waters swirl and churn
Becoming ever deeper
My life and emotions are torn in shreds
I cry out, "Why? Why Lord?"
When will it all cease?
Where is the much-needed peace?
Where is the safe haven?
When will it all end?
My God, my Lord,
Hear my desperate plea
Answer my questions
And bring some relief
I donít understand, Lord
Why must I go through so much pain?
Help me Lord; grant me your peace
Dry up the flood
Push back the rain clouds
Return your light to my life.
