I Been Working This Field (the struggles of life)

Oh Lord,
I been working this field all day long
trying to bear fruit,
I don't know if it's the branches or the root
that's gone wrong...in this tireless pursue...
My strength is gone
My hands are feeble, my knees are weak
My back is burden, my eyes seek sleep
But every morning I rise to face another day,
My skin needs relief ...in my heart I pray
Please send a breeze my way
so I can work through the clots and sand
Resistance's holding me back like strong bands
I don't know the soft and hard places in this land
Lord I need thee
The tireless struggles are causing these pains
Lord where is the rain?
Nothing but tears from my eyes,
There's not a cloud in the skies
bearing thy name I can see on the rise
I need thy
I been working this field all day long
But I'm determined to keep thy word,
To keep thy song
