Cindy Novelo: Music

Deliver Me

(Cindy Novelo)
Lyrics and music by Cindy Novelo

Written after contemplating all the division in the world - by race, nationality, religion, politics, personal opinion and preference, and so many other things - and asking myself what could be done to alleviate this division and all the suffering it causes.  The answer came as this very personal prayer.



Deliver me

Deliver me

Tear down these walls

Set my soul free

Break through these chains

Of anger and fear

Deliver me, Lord

Deliver me


Wash my eyes

That I might see

The eyes of my brother

His sorrow and need


Wash my ears

My sister to hear

Hold me near, Lord

Deliver me


Deliver me

Deliver me

Tear down these walls that blind

Set my soul free

Break through these chains

Of anger and fear

Deliver me, Lord

Deliver me


Deliver me

From hatred and judgment

Free me from blindness

Envy and greed

Fill me with kindness

Compassion and peace

Rain down thy grace

Deliver me
