The Caveman’s Prayer ¦- Psalm 142

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.
