Lord, I Need You

by Angela Umphers Rueger

I’ve failed again. Lord, please forgive.
I’m dying, yet I want to live.
To know Your joy, to feel Your love,
To set my eyes on things above.
I want to let my burdens go,
To rid my heart of hate and woe.
I want to have Your peace within
And share it with my fellow men.
Alone I cannot do this, Lord.
I need You. Lord, I need You.
