Come and Save

Come and Save

Happiness is so far away;

It's just too much for me to take.

God, why won't you come and save?

Why are you leaving me this way?

I'm falling, floundering;

There's change all around me.

God, why won't you come rescue me

If You're the one that I need?

Put me on Your solid rock;

Make me one of Your flock.

Don't leave me this way;

Jesus, come and save.

I know there's so much more

Worth fighting for,

And I'm just one girl

In my little world

Fighting my own war,

But I can't do this alone anymore.

Jesus, come and save.

In my own world,

In my own war,

But I don't know what I'm fighting for,

So I'm falling apart anyway.

Jesus, come and save.

I want to believe that when it breaks, it heals back stronger,

But, God, I can't do this on my own any longer.

Jesus has spoken,

Chains have been broken,

I'm standing here with arms wide open,

But You walk the other way.

You're leaving me this way,

And it's more than I can take.

Jesus, come and save.

amh1books: The story was wonderful. It took me a while to get into, but that's because I read it really slowly. It picked up towards the middle, and was great. I will say that the dialogue doesn't read like normal speech, but overall it was a great book.

Tomlen Brenda: waouh interesting in deed. I loved every moment ,the writing style and characters. the suspense that exist at the end of every chapter pushes the reader to go deeper.feels like I was watching a movie.keep up more grace!

Wendi Getz: Very powerful and moving story! A great read, especially for young women. I loved how it pulled the reader down the slippery slope that is domestic abuse and gave us an inside view of how easy it is to end up in that situation.
