Condemnation rains down from all sides
I have done the unspeakable

Friends and family are falling away
I am alone again

The world tells me who I am
I am rejected

Who would care if I never woke up?
I am slipping away

No one can help me now
I am leaving this place

A still small voice cries out to me
I am listening

By Christ’s blood my sin is gone
I am forgiven

Composition Date: July 11th, 2009

Holli’s Notes:
I very much felt this way for much of my life until I found God again. Hopelessness gave way to hope and redemption.
