I walked away with want to pray,
And fear raced through my heart;
And verily,
I say to thee,
The fear raced through my heart.

No way could tears tear me apart
where others might well see;
Give me a place—
A private space—
For others should not see.

But God will deal with me and sin;
I’ll pray in dark disgrace.
The good folk say.
There comes the day,
I’ll pray in dark disgrace.

If peace would come, let God begin
To let me cry that way.
Ask Him impart
His grace to start
A let me cry that way
