I used to think I had it all figured out
He could cause me no more pain, no doubt
That I had healed and left it all behind
No traces for anyone to find
Yet anger has a funny way to rear
Out of nowhere can quickly appear
The ravages of death so blindly take hold
Of resentment that has festered – old.
A promise of release if you just let it all out
But takes root deeper as I shout
Profanities, obscenities – no evidence of faith
Just unleashing of the tongue as we both lay in waste
My flesh feels overwhelmed by disgust
The only way to feel better is to release it I must.
Not by way of more tongue lashing or hate
But taking it to the Lord who is always at the gate.
Saying come to me child, let me carry this for you
There is nothing that you could every do!
Let not your heart be troubled by grief
Come to me for sweet relief
Of all your burdens and all your pain
For to live is Christ but to die is gain.
So die to your fleshly anger and die to your fears
Let me wipe away all your tears.
For you are more loved than you could every know.
Just trust in me and let it all go…..
