Black Out The Waves

I tried to cry out but I could not be heard
No warmth was offered and nothing was sure
All hope slipped away like soil through my hands
I can't save myself - I am only a man

You said, "Hold on, for mercy draws near. Let me carry your heartache, my dear"
I screamed, "Rescue me! - if I still can be saved
I'm reaching for your hand and crying out your name
Hold me down, wash me out 'till I black out the waves
You may need to drown me - if that's what it takes.."

I felt so condemned and unworthy of grace
What good have I done to deserve such embrace?
Why Lord, would you lift from me past's heavy chains
When the fault was my own and I'd chosen their weight?
Such mercy you offer - what unrelenting mercy you give
