Darkness surrounds me and moves about to and fro
It is pain and hurt of loss. It does not go.
It blows a cold air, and fills an empty heart.
It turns, hardens as it pours, it aches ever more.
It squeezes the tears that collect upon a lonely shore
What is this? Oh cruel joke, we hear a voice soar
The distant laughter; songs of merry men in the air
But you alone, without a friend, but despair.
Oh stubborn heart, there is no laughter for me!
It does not relinquish! This sound! Arise we shall see!
Of what they sing I do not know, crucified upon a tree?
Blood of innocence and scars divine; what victory is this?
For me? Why? For me. To set me free!
Oh harden heart what do you say? Shall we?
This pain has been here so long, alone I can’t anymore
Harden no more, oh heart let Him in with open door
Take it Lord, if you please, and do what you may.
The last tear drops as peace sets in, I pray
Forgive me Lord and my Savior be
Flee darkness! Leap for joy oh heart, we are free!
