REVIVE MY HEART, OH LORD
When the floods come and wash over my soul
And my breath is taken away from me,
When the sunlight is darkened by the clouds of a rising storm,
And it seems you are nowhere to be,
When beacons and flashing lights say "stay away"
My heart says not to listen to the caution
And not to see the tomorrow today.
You gave me guidance through the storm
And instructions for the way
You gave me your words to live by
And gave me maps that had been true to form
And proven over time they were no lie.
But my heart is weak from the battle
And the rushing water has filled my soul
With doubt and confusion
Not knowing which way to go.
"Seek me early" your word does say
God help me find you in my battle
Shine your beacon my way.
The storm has overcome me and the water has risen high
So much to my souls dismay
That I can't feel your presence or know that you are nigh.
Lord please send a beacon my way
Hold my head above the water that has risen over my soul
And bring my breath back to me today.
Let my memory be my reviving
From all the times you came my way
With instructions and pathways you gave me to obey
I've learned to relinquish my path and my tomorrow
And my heart to you today.
