Oh Beloved

Help me to trust in the dark
Help me to take each step
Down into grief
As needed
Oh Beloved
Help me walk in the caverns of despair
Each step slow
As if I walk through molasses
The air is thickened
My chest hurts
Oh Beloved
Help me to trust you
That just as I descend into grief
That just as I move through despair
That the steps will someday lead up again
That I will rise and spring will come
Oh Beloved
Help me to thank you
For tears and joy
