Words and music by Shannon Cerneka and Orin Johnson
Empty, broken, lifeless
I give my spirit, Lord
In you, O Lord, I take refuge.
Let me never be put to shame
In your Justice rescue me.
Redeem me, O faithful God.
I am the scorn of all my enemies,
a horror to all my friends.
Like the dead, I am forgotten;
like a broken and useless vessel.
My fate lies solely in your hands.
My Father, deliver me!
O Lord, I say, “You are my God.”
I place all my trust in you.
Let your face shine on your servant
and save me, O Lord of love
All who wait for the Lord:
Have courage, be strong, find hope!
