Musings From A Musical Mind

My Prayer

I love Chris Rice.  I have a whole radio station dedicated to his music on Pandora.  His voice and lyrics are so real – so authentic sounding.  They speak right to me.  It is something I would write myself – think about and sing.  Sometimes when I hear a song and I connect with it – there are no words to describe how it touches a deep place in my heart.  This is one of those songs for me.  I hope it will touch you today as it has me.  Enjoy!

Fresh page, new pen
Where do I begin
Words fail, tears come
I need someone
To take the thoughts I almost think
And carry them to God for me

Deep breath, exhale
Breathe in deeper still
Long sigh, I’m still numb
Is there anyone
Who can find the things I’m barely feeling
And give them wings beyond my ceiling?

Right heart, wrong place
It’s too far to outer space
Sorry, I forgot, You’re right here
I cup my hands around Your ear
I feel you smile, You feel my breath
You listen while I whisper non-sense

Simple exchange
Your will, I’m changed
And now my prayer ends
Thank You, Amen.

  1. Such a short song, but emits such powerful emotions. So few words and yet such deep meaning. That’s what I love about the challenge of poetry. And then, put it to music and it’s even more powerful. Thanks for sharing this, Cindy.

  2. That is beautiful! Thanks so much, Cindy, for posting this.
