Night of March (A Prayer in the Dark)/Sea of Galilee
The Night overtook me/The Sea consumed me.
I was on my knees on the hard cement/ I was on my knees on the soaked wood.
I was begging You to take this.
I was asking the questions and there were no answers:
“I called out in whispers and tears,
I called out all my fears.
My Mind and heart bittered against one another,
While the soul is hanging on by a tether.
I walked for a good long while,
I must have walked on for a good mile.
Questions, questions in the dark,
Silence, Silence in my heart.
Thud—the answer revealed,
Thud—my mind was sealed.
It seems forever I will say
God, God, please help me.
God, God, please save me, I pray.”
And in the Morning, you shouted across the surface of my soul:
“If I walked the waters of Galilee,
If I calmed the storms of men,
If I split the Red Sea,
Then certainly I can bring you to the shore,
Where joy will overflow and these sorrows will be no more.”
