what wondrous love is this, o my soul, o my soul what wondrous love is this, o my soul what wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss to bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul to God and to the lamb, I will sing, I will sing to God and to the lamb, I will sing to God and to the lamb who is the great I am while millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing and when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on and when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on and when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be and through eternity, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on

this is to mother you, to comfort and to get you through through when your nights are lonely through when your dreams are only blue this is to mother you this is to be with you, to hold you and to kiss you too for when you need me I will do what your own mother didn't do which is to mother you all the pain that you have known all the violence in your soul all the wrong things you have done I will take from you when I come all mistakes made in distress all your unhappiness I will take away with my kiss I will give you tenderness for child I am so glad I've found you although my arms have always been around you sweet bird although you did not see me I saw you and I'm here to mother you, to comfort and to get you through through when your nights are lonely through when your dreams are only blue this is to mother you

Psalm 13 05:22
o Lord, how long will you forget me, forever how long will you look the other way how long must I struggle with anguish in my soul with sorrow in my heart every day how long will my enemy have the upper hand turn and answer me, O Lord my God restore the sparkle to my eyes or I will die don’t let my enemies triumph over me don’t let them rejoice at my downfall but I trust in your unfailing love my heart will rejoice for you have rescued me I will sing to the Lord for he has been good to me I will sing, I will sing

I can't believe, the million things I need what I've done, and where I'm from, what have I not become fled you down, nights and days, your labyrinthine ways in my coming, in my going, in my waking, medicating no matter the way I'm facing these voices they surround me, and break in like a sea and lip to lip entwined as one, in moans and beats but where can I go that you won't follow hell below me, your hounds above me where can I go that you won't follow no space around me your thoughts about me, when I was unborn these voices they surround me, and break apart the light the darkness feels much closer tonight where can I go, where can I go
5.
light of those whose dreary dwelling borders on the shades of death come and by thy love's revealing dissipate the clouds beneath dissipate the clouds beneath still we wait for thine appearing life and joy thy beams impart chasing all our fears and cheering every poor benighted heart every poor benighted heart come and manifest the favor God hath for our ransomed race come thou universal savior come and bring the gospel grace come and bring the gospel grace

about
