Cast Out Despair




Cast out despair

Oh, Creator of mine,

Cause Your Presence

On me to shine.


When dark clouds

Over me roll,

Bring Your Word

And make me whole.


Send Your Holy Spirit

Set me free,

From all the chains

That would bind me.


Cast out despair

Oh, Creator of mine,

Cause Your love

On me to shine.
