My soul was withered within me
Emotions drowned me
My smile faded like the sun at sunset,
Skin and bones was all I was,
Shadow of death,
I lay in.
I felt cold, still, motionless,
And worst of all hopeless,
I was sure I was dead.
From 6 ft under,
I cried out to yonder,
And He saved me,
Yes, His Grace swooped in,
And picked me up out of the pit.
Some sat in darkness,
In utter darkness,
Prisoners suffering in iron chains…
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
And He saved them from their distress.
He brought them out of darkness,
The utter darkness,
And broke away their chains.
Let them give thanks to the Lord,
For His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for mankind,
For He breaks down gates of bronze,
And cuts through bars of iron.
– Psalm 107:10 &13-16
