Wolves snapping at the door
Bill collectors wanting more
Subtle threats, hard to ignore
How will we ever get through?
I want to do more than I do
And yet I want to rest in You
How is one to reconcile the two
How can it all work out?
I fight to turn away the doubt
To figure all the lessons out
But my fears are more than I can count
Don’t you have an answer for me?
This isn’t how it’s supposed to be
If we cast all our cares on Thee
But I can’t even lift them, don’t You see?
Much less all the way up there.
I have to tell you, Lord, I’m scared
I just can’t do it. I’m not prepared
To relinquish the worry, I haven’t yet dared
To imagine You have a way.
If You spoke to me now what would You say?
To ease my mind right now, today.
To provide for me a visible ray
Of hope or something to grasp?
I know there were lessons in the past
And it breaks Your heart I forget them so fast
But Lord my spirit is so downcast
And I just don’t see any way clear
So Lord, oh please won’t You hear?
Please come and hold me near
Please take away my fear
And hold me ’til the daylight comes
