Desert Soul

this land is as dead as my soul
 so purge and make new
 even if it means a knife
 i want life

new life
 spring
 make me clean
 new

i want You
 oh God, rescue me
 i'm drowning
 i don't see the light
 all is night 
 an endless cycle down

my soul's diseased
 and I need You please
 because the light is fading
 i'm forgetting You and Your ways
 the Devil's lies seem sweet
 give me swift feet to run
 for I am Your son
 let me not believe his lies
 they are my demise

i need You.

About Paul O'Brien

I am a lot of things; saint and sinner. I struggle and I strive. I am a husband and father of three. I have been in pastoral ministry for 9 years. I went to school at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary but most of my schooling has been at the School of Hard Knocks. I have worked various jobs, including pheasant farmer, toilet maker, construction worker, and I served in the military. My wife and I enjoy reading at coffee shops, taking walks, hanging out with friends and family, and watching our three kid's antics. :)
