Out of the depths, I cry to you-

The depths of my anxiety.

The depths of my grief.

The depths of my frustration.

The depths of my pain.

The depths of my fear.

Out of the depths, I cry to you-

For those who are exhausted.

For those who are sick.

For those who have been left behind.

For those who are seeking a sense of control.

For those who know they cannot be saved.

Out of the depths, I cry to you-

As I wash my hands.

As I walk alone.

As I talk to people on the phone.

As I log in for the 100th Zoom call.

As I preach to an empty room.

Out of the depths, I cry to you.

I beg for consolation.
