When, O Lord, shall I ever be free
From the turmoil I have inside?
When will I finally know the freedom,
I should have in Jesus Christ?
There's no one that could understand
What I go through every day,
They cannot see inside my heart,
Nor feel the words I pray
I know, my Lord, you're drawing out
These things I've buried deep,
That I may face them at this time,
Though it causes so much grief
I know I need to deal with this
In order to be moving on,
But I need to ask this one thing, Lord,
I need to know, 'How long'
How long, O God, will I be this way?
When will I finally be free?
How long will I cry out to you?
O Lord, please answer me
I feel, at times, like giving up,
But I know I must press through
It seems so overwhelming, Lord,
And so very hard to do
I know I need to focus on
One little step at a time,
For that is all I can take right now,
For the way is steep to climb
I thank you, Lord, you understand,
You know just how I feel
And you will bring me through one day,
Freed, and totally healed
I long, O God, for that day
When I shall be restored
And become the person I should be
Bringing glory to you, Lord.
