In this Desert Place

by Danette Kettwich

I've let myself wander
Into the desert once again,
Where my spirit thirsts
And sin becomes my friend.

Parched as the sand is here
My life has now become,
Leaving me so empty
And Your will's undone.

Lord, find me in this place
Send Your healing rain,
I can't bear it any longer
The cracked dryness of this pain.

Lord, please wash over me
With Your unfailing grace;
As I meet with you here
In this desert place.

One day apart from You
I find is all it takes,
For sin to grab my heart
And fill me with mistakes.

Lord, Please rain down on me
With your anointed grace,
As I kneel before you here
In this desert place.
