Oh God, with broken heart I pray;

Forgive and indwell me today.

I saw the distant land last night,

I was not there! Awoke in fright.



Could not forestall the tears that fell

So fearful of that burning hell!

I felt the flame, I smelled the smoke,

That is when I, thankfully, awoke!



Oh God! Contain me in this hour.

Now give me peace, do not want to cower,

In the shadows fearing evil

Darkness of a hateful devil!



Keep me from falling, guide I pray!

I want to walk with You this day!

Identify! So hard to do!

But so much better, Lord, with You!
