How many live in darkness and suffering

How many wonder why God doesn’t do anything

The Lord knows all who call upon His name

Yet most of their lives remain the same

He eases our anxiety and settles our fears

He calms our shaking and wipes our tears

But still, joy does not come in the morning

When we awake we do not praise or sing

Every day we are crushed by all our burdens

Despite our prayers our suffering never ends

So then what hope is there for someone like me

What good is desiring peace and wanting to be free

For many are called but few are chosen, as the scriptures say

And I am but a sinner at the end of the day
