Dear God

Blaming Thee for all our pain
We take Your holy name in vain
Yearning to be free
We turn away from Thee

Wishing to do as we please
We rush into the wayward seas
Struggling to be free
We flee from Thee

Turning here and there for what we need
We fail to give Thy words any heed
Feigning to be free
We close our eyes to Thee

In one corner of the mind or another
We hide ourselves, becoming all the blinder
In the dungeons of our souls we pretend to be free
All the while groping in the darkness without Thee

In the deep of the night into which we fled
We accept at last what we once did dread
Only by chaining ourselves to Thee
Can we ever truly be free
