Dig Me Out of this Pit of Hell

I am in dangerous waters,
The current too strong for me
I need a power that is higher
My God, reach down to me..

Reach down Your mighty hands
Nothing is too hard for You
Just speak the word, give the command
And no waters can disobey You.

No man can help me in these waters
No friend can help me in this valley
See, Lord, I am right under
My hope and help is in the Almighty.

Some may depend on riches
But I depend in You, All-powerful
Others may depend on princes
I depend on You, Ever-faithful.

My eyes are on You, O Holy One
Like Jehoshaphat of old
My eyes are on You, O Lord
Like David of old.

Use You shovel of Grace, O God
And dig me out of this deep pit
Use the power of Your Spirit, O God
Wrench me out of this horrible pit.

Only You, and You alone can save
That is why I call with all my heart
Break my bonds, bring me out of the grave
Have mercy, my God, and give a fresh start.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, [a] you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,"
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
