i have a new song

Below are the lyrics to the Chris Rice song, "My Prayer".  The song is a simple vignette of what it's like to talk to God.  I wish I could put my feelings into words like this.  I can't, so I just listen, and enjoy.  You should download this song... it's beautiful.

"My Prayer"

Fresh page, new pen
Where do I begin
Words fail, tears come
I need someone
To take the thoughts I almost think
And carry them to God for me

Deep breath, exhale
Breathe in deeper still
Long sigh, I'm still numb
Is there anyone
Who can find the things I'm barely feeling
And give them wings beyond my ceiling?

Right heart, wrong place
It's too far to outer space
Sorry, I forgot, You're right here
I cup my hands around Your ear
I feel you smile, You feel my breath
You listen while I whisper non-sense

Simple exchange
Your will, I'm changed
And now my prayer ends
Thank You, Amen
