GUIDE HER WAY
My child cut herself today.
Lord, I understand.
The kind of things inside her heart
As the blade is in her hand.
She’s trying very hard,
Gaining strength each passing day;
Fighting off temptations
To harm herself this way.
Fighting back the tears she cries
Bad memories keep their hold.
Help her find the strength inside
To learn to just let go.
Thinking she deserves the pain
Is all she knows to feel.
Show her that you’re there for her;
A sign that you are real.
She prayed to you when she was young
To make her life OK.
Not knowing that the path she walked
Would make her who she is today.
If she could just feel your presence
I know she would believe.
Just carry her for a while Lord,
And let her suffering leave.
Please help her to have faith
And believe that you are there.
Then I know she’d talk to you
And feel the power of prayer.
Just a little sign Lord
That she can understand.
Let her feel the strength inside
From the touch of your gentle hand.
I turn it over it you Lord,
To help her find the way.
And feel you deep inside her heart
So you can guide her way.
