Ah, my Lord, why leave me alone?
My foes have wearied me; my foes are sure of their victory.
Ah, my Lord, how long must I wait for your hand?
Must I be strong, and will you be there as I make my stand?
Give me your sword, and help me slay the enemies of God
'til victory and glory be yours,
and their warring is in vain.
Ah, my Lord!
How long 'til I know your plan?
My wand'ring soul is weak.
And now I lose my way home.
Give me your sword, and help me slay the enemies of God,
so vitory will fly from their eyes,
and they turn their face away.
Ah, my Lord!
How long 'til I see my way?
I need your guiding hand 'til I can find my way home.
How will I find my way home?
