Oh God my Father, my hope, hear the cry of my soul,
the wait of the lonely is intolerable, there is no one at home!
Though the knees of your servant may buckle,
and circumstance looks grim, Your mercy is sure.
I confess as one weary to carving idols for my comfort;
forgive my sin against You and my neighbors.
Lead me in the way of your choosing, help me to submit,
Change my heart of rock to heart broken
Grant me grace in sorrow, fix my courage in fear.
In weeping and dancing, to God be the glory,
In the name of Christ, always, Amen.
