     Restore Me Back Where I Belong

Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I’ve done you wrong
Again and it’s a cryin’ shame,
I cry, I cry, I am to blame,
Have mercy, please don’t wait too long.

I break, I break, I am not strong,
Deserving all I suffer from,
And only You restore the calm,
Have mercy, please don’t wait too long.

My sobs and sorrow are my song,
My psalm, my plea, my overture,
My broken heart longs for Your cure,
Have mercy, please don’t wait too long.

Restore me back where I belong
To be with You in pastures green
By waters still, gates opaline,
Have mercy, please don’t wait too long.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
