Hanging on to hope

Sure in the silence
despite impending violence
To thee we grope
for life and hope
And without your power
all is lost and devoured
We lay these woes at your feet
and humbly ask you to defeat
Those foes of wholeness and health
that overtake with cunning and stealth
In the long darkness ahead
guide and protect us from being misled
Give sweet dreams and strong assurance
lest sorrow and doubt test our endurance
Calm fully the burdened mind
and peace, help us each to find
