4-23-05 When anxious thoughts constrict the heart When fear or dread constrain Protect, O God, the beating breast and calm, Lord, every pain.
When naught but bleak the future's look When gray the sky's appear; Break Thou the overcast with light and make Thine presence near.
For night without the dawn of day As hope to guide the soul leaves lives that ebb and flow away that long to be made whole.
God, break the long-lived silence here With words that pierce like day; With whispers in the calloused ear we've ached for you to say.
