to God be the glory

blankets of dolour weigh me down
i drown
underneath a quilt of guilt
heavy and thick
my soul is sick with lies
seven times i cry
out to heaven for deliverance
attempting to escape my own numbing penance
i fall and i fail and i fall and i fail
smothering beneath sin and emotional hell
i keep returning to vomit
as if this time it's finally going to taste sweet
failures taunt me; scores and scores
Father keep me! i'm Yours!
like a flood the enemy tempts
to wash me aside
yet You are my anchor
and i am Your bride
jealousy burns through each link
of these chains
I'M FREE! I'M FREE! Hallelujah I'm free!
just when i think
i'll inevitably sink
Your magnificent love rescues me

Author's Notes/Comments: 

He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. He delivered me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. they confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He delivered me because He delighted in me. ~Psalm 18:16-19
