When all seems dark and the darkness is harsh, GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
When I cannot see light even in the brightest day, GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
When you are tired and every breath is heavy, GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
When my words do not grasp the depth of yearning in my soul, GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
When your feelings are overwhelming or dulled, GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
When I am confused and don’t know what to do, GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
So that we may be together, GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
