Beleaguered and Beaten
Burned to a crisp
My religion i've got lost
What is to turn into of this?
The fireplace burns brightly … The ashes unfold widely.
All i think is death
Lord how do i am getting out of this?
The gentle glints simply dim
But flicker it does
For the reply now could be known
I have misplaced every thing basically to regain it
Trials and toils
They do boil within the deep of my soul
My burning and craving to do right
With all thy might
I humble thyself in thy sight
The trip has been lengthy … now i'm strong
