Soul Cast Down

Soul Cast Down
Gregg Metcalf

(based on Psalm 142)

Chorus

Oh my soul
why are you cast down?
Oh my soul
lost in barren ground
blistering sun
beats down on me
blistering sun
burns relentlessly

I looked on my left hand
and found no one there
Looked on my right hand
for someone to care
but refuge has failed me
no one cares for my soul
as far as I can see
and it's taking its toll

I cried out to You Father
please hear my cry
just a little drop of water
for my soul that's so dry
you have brought me low
for my own good
please help me Father
don't be too slow

Chorus

Oh my soul
why are you cast down?
Oh my soul
lost in barren ground
blistering sun
beats down on me
blistering sun
burns relentlessly

All of my enemies
are stronger than me
they have set snares
placed secretly
they wait for the time
for me to fall down
I can see them coming
they are all around

Bring my soul out
of this dark prison
please grant my request
I know I am risen
put my soul at rest
flood me with plenty
and hold nothing back
let my praises be many

Chorus

Oh my soul
why are you cast down?
Oh my soul
lost in barren ground
blistering sun
beats down on me
blistering sun
burns relentlessly
