The Edge of the Pit

On the edge of the pit of self-pity and despair
I wavered and stumbled – an unseen force pulling me in.

On the edge of the pit God saw my need,
Showed His warriors the danger of my place.

On the edge of the pit those friends saw my plight;
They talked, they loved, most of all they prayed.

On the edge of the pit, overcoming prayers
Sent ministry to my spirit, opened the eyes of my mind.

On the edge of the pit I saw the light of Jesus:
His tender arms pulled me from the edge of the pit.
