"Deliverance"

When will this end?
Where do I start?
I am frightened by
The darkness of my heart.
So easily I slip
Into this death grip.
One moment away from You
Seems like an eternity;
Forever craving Your presence
And longing for Your glory.
I want out of this hole
To bask once more in Your light.
Pull me out of this Despair --
This pit of dark'ning gloom.
I want to see the Sun
And no longer hail the moon.
Oh, for a glimpse of Light!
No more darkness, no more night.
I grow weak outside Your grace;
Give this sin no more place
In my ever-wandering heart.
Lord, deliver me from the Dark.
