Death claimed this day for its own The life I had planned is now gone The world around me fell Even the air around me has become my own fiend

I fought, altercations I’ve spat Till my body had grown weak

Cursed were the things my hands built Barren was the ground I planted my seed Everything meant nothing, and in nothingness I found my new home Loneliness and seclusion are my only company now They are the only ones that will walk this path with me

My tears, all I have for food Woe and sorrow is my only song now Has my faith slipped through the floor What’s left of my life, shambles in a dry well

Oh God when did my own strides take precedent over your sovereignty When did my sights flip the scales When did I become more and you became less This mess I made is a product of self-reliance

As I try to stand on these trembling legs I lean on you You are the only constant in this wavering world

You are the only hope that I have in my darkest of days You are my strength, my peace, when I have none You are the satisfaction, for my emptiness, for this emptiness

Take away everything, revive this contrite heart When the wind blows dig your roots deep

Dig your roots deep The light breeze that once entertained these leaves Are now vices gusting me into a heap

Now I know I created an eclipse All these days I’ve been so blind

Now I know I cannot live with out the Son My own desires blocking out the light

Now I know The life I had planned is now gone Nothing compares your presence is worth more

Now I know Strip it away, nothing compares I’d lose it all to gain everything
