Lord, take me back to where I was
Before I let the devil have me
He's carried me away from You, oh Lord
He's taken my eyes and I can no longer see

Living like this is nothing
I've got nothing to look forward to
But if I could see a ray of light
I know it'd lead me back to You

Your salvation makes me breathless
And surprises me every day
I can't wait to go to heaven
If, by Your will, I may

Your words are not wasted on me
But I can't hear exactly what You're saying
I'm trying to get back to You, Lord
Until then, I'll keep on praying

Now, I'm not one for religious pieces, but this was very powerful. Excellent work, really. Very nice, developed ryhme scheme and it flowed well. I actually really liked this, great job!
