There’s a heat wave in the desert

A thirst longing to be quenched

My lips are cracked, I won’t look back

I’m burning in the sand

I can no longer feel my feet

They are blistered on this land

I carry on my back, the sand of my despair

It’s a heavy load and burden

I know it must be done

I close my burning eyes, and pray

Oh Lord, please come to me

This lonely walk across this land

Has imprisoned me

I kneel to Thee, I know you see

I’m burning in the sand
