Supplication

O sleepless night.
Canst Thou but wait with me
One hour?

My heart is heavy,
Burdened with inexpressible sorrow.
Leave me not alone.

Depths I travel.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil,

For Thou art with me
Through pain and betrayal,
From darkness into everlasting light.

O wait with me.
Wait with me not one hour
But all the night.
