Hope Lost

Lanny Farmer

I’ve lost all hope and lost all heart.
My days are walking in the dark.
Depression makes me want to hide
and conjures thoughts of suicide.

To take my life and leave this earth,
to find relief, forget the hurt,
to close my eyes and never wake—
No, that would be a great mistake.

Find the hope in God’s great love,
and give the hurt to God above.
Your life is good, don’t choose to miss
God’s once in a lifetime, precious gift.
