Lord! I cannot see the light of day,
For this cave is dark and yet I pray.
Life has overwhelmed me on every side,
Because of oppression, fear and pride.
But you, oh Lord, are my strength,
My refuge in times of worry and fear.
You will deliver me from all of this,
And will gently draw my soul near.
I will yet stand victorious,
Even though I am in a cave.
Before I can see it happen,
I give you, Lord, all the praise.
For the light of day will come
And I will still give you praise,
For helping me through it all,
When I prayed in the cave.
