Hey Lord

by Paul “Gully” Richards

Hey lord!
Here I am again.
At your cross 
I take
My stand.
In front of you
I don’t know what to do
When it comes
To the 
Me and you.
About the “me and you”.
 
I thought I’d find comfort 
In your robe.
But I find 
It’s a long 
And 
Difficult road.
 
It’s getting dark
And I
Don’t see
Much light.
So
Here I am again.
I offer you
My life.
 
Hey Lord,
You’ve always
Been 
My friend.
You will
Restore my sight
And see me
Through again.
See me through again.
 
Hey Lord,
Can ya roll 
Away this
Here stone?
I’ve been
Pushing 
And pulling
But can’t 
Do it on my own.
Can’t do it in my own again.
 
Hey Lord,
Can you walk
By my side?
Help me carry
My cross
Which 
I am bound.
 
Hey Lord,
I got this
Wound
In my side.
I feel
As if
I might die.
They say
It’s all because of you.
Because of you.
What can I do
Lord?
What should 
I do?
 
I take my stand
Here
In front
Of you
What can I do?
You whisper 
Love them
Like
I love you
And forgive 
Them what they do.
Forgive them.
They know not
What they
Do.
