LIFELINE

Father, I can't do it,

These things I have to face.

I should walk before You,

In Your holiness and grace.


But in this situation,

Holy, I am not,

I can't see through all this fog,

I don't know what You want!


I try so very hard, Lord,

to just do what is right.

I am so tired of begging,

To be rescued from this plight.


Like a child, in deep, deep water,

My plans have fallen through,

Yet, I hang on to them,

They're pulling me down, too!


"CHILD, LOOSE NOW, THOSE PLANS,

AND LET THEM FLOAT ON BY.

I'M THROWING OUT A LIFELINE,

OF NEW PLANS FOR YOU AND I.


DON'T BE AFRAID OF LETTING GO,

TRUST ME AND BE AT PEACE.

YOU SEE MY LIFELINE'S DIFFERENT,

THERE'S NO BUTTON OF RELEASE! "
