Oh Lord What Do I Do Now


Hitting your knees and bowing down
Crying 'Oh lord what do I do now '?
I have fallen and I can't get up
Now I'm coming to you to lend me a hand
cause I know you've always been there to
Help me take a stand.
My heart is broken and My nerves are shot
my spirit is worn and I'm here in a spot
That I can't get out of to save my life so
I'm begging you to help my wife. She's
laid up in the bed sick to death so badly
Ill almost loosing her breath. Her eyes
are red her body's cold, her legs are
Shivering cause their almost froze. She coughs
every minute and the thermometer goes red
her heads aching so bad it's wonder her hair
Don't shed. I took her to the doctor and they said
'We'll keep her overnight and run some test
And see if we can get her back at her best.
But the doctors only know what a book tells
them so I'm coming to you lord cause I know
You can fix the problem. Let the doctors say
she's back in good health cause it ain't like I'm
Sitting here with a pocket full of wealth. Lord if it
be in your will make it to where she don't need
Them pills. Please help her be able to walk again
Like before this sickness came in. Lord I know you
can show them doctors how so help me cause I don't
Know what to do now.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
