"Without A Map" as written by and Marketa Irglova....
God, I've been sent here blind to learn to see
Remembering you were always there with me
But do you know just how hard that's been?
Could all of this really have been foreseen?
I'd like to say a prayer. How does it go?
I'm tired. Tell me, God, does it show?
What could have called for such a handicap?
I was sent out here without a map.
All this time, I've had to guess the way,
To keep moving when I wished to stay.
I've been wrong as much as I've been right.
You tell me, "Walk by faith and not by sight.
And keep your heavy heart afloat.
You are a timber carved by knife
But someday you may serve as a boat."

What I lose here on earth... is lost in heaven
If I ask you for help... it will be given
But you've waited this long... you weren't ready
My devotion was strong... it wasn't steady
I have one more question... you have the answer too
But what does it mean? You're I and I am you
Why speak in riddles? Then let me show the way
That's all I've wanted. That's all you've had to say.

Well come on then, God show me
Which way you would like me to go.
And I won't resume to question
How I was ever supposed to know.
There have been signs along the way
But they've been so very obscure.
At times I thought I knew their meaning
But how could I have ever been sure?

God, I was sent here deaf to learn to hear,
To have faith in you and never fear.
Life is an ocean, you its every wave.
Your arms would cradle me and keep me safe.
You're right, all this, and more, I need to learn.
All this unease just makes my stomach churn.
It was I, not you, who set this trap
But you did leave me here without a map.
All this time, I've had to guess the way,
To keep moving when I wished to stay.
I've been right as much as I've been wrong.
So all I hear from you is:
"You are strong enough
For all you'll ever have to face.
The only map you need is love,
To guide you through this illusion of a maze."

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed by Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, they will be done
On Earth, as it is in heaven,
Give us today our daily bread,
Forgive us, Father, all our sins,
As we forgive those who sin against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thy is the kingdom
And the power and the glory
Now and forever more
Amen
