a lament

Oh Lord, such a hard year
so battle weary
we are weak and bloody
but here
we are barely able to stand
or even to see through the fog
the pain still comes in waves
and the sadness wedges deep
none were left unaffected
it’s hard to help them
when my own flesh fails me
drowning in tears
exhausted and frail
but You are able
Your strength can fill
Your hand can steady
Your Word does still heal and restore

Come O LORD and do what You do

strengthen the weak
knit hearts back together
and make victors out of the worn
for Your great glory
and for our good
in Jesus mighty name.
