"Prayer" (poem)

 O come and wake me from my sleep
The night’s too long, the sorrow’s deep
My heart is hard, my soul is dry
Come wake me with the newborn’s cry

Come help me see and hear once more
Lift up my heart like years before
Come take my hand and show the way
Unleash my voice, so I can pray

O come, for I’ve forgotten all
Help me recall, help me recall
O come, release me from a spell
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel 

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
