Listening To Ruthie Play

Listening To Ruthie Play

I wish I could sing
I wish I could play
The blues of my soul
Praise the Creator each day

Give me your voice
Let me shout the name
Free will free choice
Left with only me to blame

I wish I could sing
I wish I could play
Raise my voice to the Lord
Wash all my sins away

Save me from my thoughts in here
All my desire evil and fear

I wish I could cry
All my tears to the dust
Bring on the moment to die
End my faith and trust

Give me back my voice
Take the Devil from my name
Erase all my past choice
Wipe away my shame

I wish I could still sing
I wish I could still play
Undo all the pain I bring
Take away the things I say

Save me from my repeated sin
Don’t let the Devil back in

I wish I could sing again
I wish I could play on
All the praise to Jesus name
When all my faith is gone

Give me your voice and word
Let me see your face
Help me to be here heard
Guide me to your place

I wish I could sing out loud
I wish I could play that chord
And still never be that proud
Remain the sheep in the herd

Save me from my own desire
Free me from this fire

I wish I could sing your name
I wish I knew how to play
Wash me clean of my great shame
Raise me on that day

Give me your guiding light
Direct me on the track
Help me in this endless fight
To win my soul and love back

I will learn to sing again
And learn your song and play
I shall be free from all my pain
And be created on that day

You saved me from my evil self
Now faith hope and love my eternal wealth.
