The Shadow of His Wings

Psalm 17:8 "Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me under the shadow of your wings."

I am finding myself for a loss of words
and I am not sure if I know how I feel
I just know God I want to please your heart
and forever and always will

Day by day I stumble and fall
and don't have the strength to get back up
God why do I feel this way
Lord help me I am stuck

So many nights are filled with pain
it seems like nothing satisfies my heart
but Lord teach me about your love
and that will be my start

I've come to a fork in the road
and God I need you to be my guide
it's easy to go to the left
but Lord I feel you calling me to the right

So now I wanted to take this moment
and offer you my life
take from me what you want
I want to live for you til I die

Lord I only want you as my portion
and now basically need one thing
for you to make me the apple of your eye
and hide me under the shadow of your wings
