Take Me Out Of The Dark - Poem by Ramon Amancio Estanque

Just what is it in me?
sometimes I just don't know
what keeps me in your love
why you never let me go
And though you're in me now
I fall and hurt you still
My Lord please show me how
to know just how you feel
You have forgiven me
too many times it seems
I feel I'm not what you might call
a worthy Christian after all
And though I love you so temptations
finds it's way to me

Teach me to trust in You
with all of my heart
to lean not on my own understanding
coz' I just forget
You won't give me what we can't bear
Take me out of the dark My Lord
I don't want to be there

You never left my side
You gave Your hand to me
to hold You, oh Jesus
I'm no longer in the cold
And yet I leave You there
when I feel satisfied
I'd like to thank You everyday
not only when I feel that way
I've never known a man
who'd give His life for sinners like me
And yet because He loves us so
He promised us eternity
And we can have His promise
and be His if have faith and
just believe..

Teach us to trust in You
with all our heart
to lean not on our own understanding
cause we just forget
You won't give us what we can't bear
Take us out of the dark our Lord
We don't want to be there
Yeah, My Lord

Teach me to trust in You
with all of my heart
to lean not on my own understanding
'cause I just forget
You might give me what I can't bear
Take me out of the dark My Lord
I we don't want to be alone
You take me out of the dark, My lord
i don't want to be there......

    Oh, my, written with so much want and need to please and live as I Creator wants us to. But despite our wanting we still fall short, but yet because we want to do better he was willing to sacrifice his Son, Jesus, so that we can ask for forgiveness and do better. But it too cuts me to my heart when I think of how loving he is, and how we because of inherited sin fall short a lot. But he is there to take us out of the dark, when we need to. I loved this writing it was very very touching and from the heart..... (Report) Reply
