How Many Times


How many times have I sat here alone
how many times have I sat weary to the bone
how many times have I searched for hope
how many times have I tried to cope
how many times have I lost my way
how many times have I longed for the day
and how many times have You seen my struggles
how many times have You heard my cry
how many times have You told me to try
one more time

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
