Overcome the Pain
by Daniel Smith
(Beverly, New Jersey, US)
It takes everything just to hide
This pain I hold inside
This weight I can no longer bear
The world's hurt that I wear
This pain going beyond just me
But a cry of our lost humanity
This world's sin trying to bring me down deep
My soul darkness wishes to keep
But my heart wants to do what is right
No matter how difficult the fight
I don't care what others say
I will take the higher way
I know I can't do this on my own
I need to be closer to you Lord
The power of your source
The almighty righteous force
Only you can carry this burdensome weight
And take away all my malicious hate
May I be deeper in love with You
For it is your grace that will carry me through
Only you can take away this shame
The power of your Name
In You I have overcome the pain.
