What can a man do when God allows calamity in his life?
What comfort can there be, what word of encouragement can lift the spirit when all he loves is turned to ash.
Oh Lord tell me where you may be found and I will seek you.
Show me what to do and I will move toward it.
Shine a light through the darkness that I may follow.
My steps are heavy, my breath labored. My heart aches and there is no relief.
Lord be my salvation, hold me up when I cannot stand.
Fill me with your spirit, be my strength in the midst of the storm.
My soul is wrung out, my thoughts are dark and lonely, only you can deliver me, only you can lift me from this pit.
Be my help and my comfort, restore me and I will not cease to praise you.
