Let It Roll

The Frozen Fair 2017 -Long, Long Way To Go

Isaiah 42

Let It Roll
by Michael Romani

All these obsessive intentions
Play into the one contention
That things slip through our hands
For a reason that I don't understand

A quiet voice whispers to me
Boy, you gotta let it roll
A nod given gently
There's so much out of my control

Feeling like I'm walking through fire
Led by my confusion and desire
I can only pray to find my peace
No matter how life seems to tease

I know that God is with me
In all that i do, blinded yet I see
In general terms of intrusion
I only wish to see beyond the illusion

Burned hot, seared in your Holy Name
I feel alone and weak and know I'm to blame
I want to learn how to trust again
Feeling so lost and without a single friend

A quiet voice whispers to me
Boy, you gotta let it roll
A nod given gently
There's so much out of my control

Crushed in my spirit, my heart is broken
Lost in a tribulation of words unspoken
I need to find my way to believe again
Feeling so much pain; I could use a friend

Moving at my life sometimes at full tilt
Watching so much of what I have built
Crumble on the drifting sands of time
Sometimes sure it's solid sort of crime

Sailing alone sometimes against the wind
Scrambling to find hope around the bend
On my knees, seeking my deliverance
Wondering why I am my own hindrance 

Lord, I need your loving, guiding hand
To trust again, help me please to understand
I know that you are always with me
If only I could and would as I should trust in thee
