Longing for a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry,
Upon ceasing to believe, someone to help me fly.
To You I turned when I most needed a friend,
Emitting the brightest light, You loved me without end.
Existing was this love from the beginning of creation,
But this I failed to realize as I prayed with hesitation.
Persistent You were in teaching me, so that I won’t stray,
Yet I ignored You, from Your Word I turned away.
There were times I nearly drowned in frustration
This You knew, and tried to diminish my aggravation
Overpowered by my ignorance I regret I didn’t see,
That by knowing You, saved from troubles I would be!
Omnipresent You are, through Your creation, this You made me see,
You assured me if I need comfort, just open my arms and there You’ll be
Hearing these words enabled me to slow down and think,
I realized that living without You, down I will surely sink
In my heart, in my soul, steadfast faith I now have for You,
To Your feet, devoted I am and You, I trust in all that I do.
During trials You welcome me with your warm embrace
You made me believe that I will win no matter what I face.
You released this confused self that was once mine,
You freed my soul helping me to see how I truly shine.
My only true, eternal relationship lies with ONLY You,
In birth and death, You’re the one who’ll get me through.
