I REACH FOR YOU, O LORD
Dear Lord, You know the road is rocky,
with many stones along the way;
sometimes my footsteps get
it's hard to walk another day.
And, Lord, You know I
get so lonely;
I feel like all my friends are
My children now are grown and
there's no one left but me at
The years, it seems, have crept
vitality is on the wane.
My body now is old and hurting;
I need a pill to ease the
And sometimes, Lord, I feel so
depression seems to settle in.
I contemplate about the future
and dream about where I have
But, Lord, it's when I'm most
and when I'm feeling more than
a voice inside me seems to
that I should reach, my God, for
Your gentle peace then comes to
and somehow eases all my fears.
I feel Your certain, holy
and shed grateful, cleansing,
