BAHA'U'LLAH I've Got The Blues

Laden with tests, You say are good for me
I know You would never overburden my soul
Your healing message isn't getting through to me
That's my problem I know
I'm stuck here in my humanness
Baha'u'llah I've got the blues

You wish me joy and happiness
You let no harm beset me in times of tests
These promises of Yours I know
And in my heart believe
For now I'm trapped within my humanness
Baha'u'llah I've got the blues

You are the Remover of my difficulties
The Dispeller of my grief
And all you ask of me
Is that I bare witness to my belief
Yet I can't rise above my humanness
Baha'u'llah I've got the blues

You offer me wings of joy
And hold me as I weep
You call me to a higher place
But my feet are planted deep into my humanness
Baha'u'llah I've got the blues

You befriend me in my loneliness
And refresh my drooping soul
You deprive me not of Thy Wonderous Grace
Still I revel in my humanness
Baha'u'llah I've got the blues

My spirit crawls along the ground
My soul cries out in pain
Only now can I put pen to paper to proclaim Your Name
The paint explores my humanness and sets my spirit free
Baha'u'llah Thank-you for the blues.

In the garden of thy heart
plant naught but the rose of love,
and from the nightingale of affection and desire
loosen not thy hold.
