I'm ragged and I'm hungry.
My needs I can't afford.
My debts are huge and piling up.
Please lift me through it Lord.
I've served my country, served it well,
I've fought the gun and sword.
Though I survived, it's difficult -
please help me through it Lord.
An accident has left me lame,
I cannot be restored -
'cept through a gracious miracle.
Please walk me through it Lord.
I've lost my dear and loving spouse,
and I'm so lonely, bored.
Please speak to me with scripture now
and hold me through it Lord.
I was so blind in all my sin.
Your grace I had ignored.
Now through Your love and sacrifice,
please save me through it Lord.
Finally on my deathbed, I'm
about to get on-board -
a ship that takes me there to You.
Please see me through it Lord.
