Afraid

My world’s turned upside down and I’m in a muddle:
I’m afraid to do anything, terrified of people!

It’s a comfort to get back to the office:
but my work is suffering, I can’t do what I want.

Where am I going to go:
where shall I find the vision I need?

I need to find myself again:
the real me, the person inside me, the one I’ve forgotten.

The mystery behind the eyes of the other person:
it’s the same wonder as the mystery of God.

Then maybe other people can help me be me:
your presence enable me see value in myself?

You have said that I needn’t be afraid:
I trust in you to help, remove my terror –

you are my true salvation, my lasting joy:
I trust you to remove my fear and be my strength.
