Edwards - Walther
My tears fall with heavy sobs
I reach for anyone to hold
No one is around . . . but You are.
You never leave me crying alone
When I see no one,
You are there
Tenderly You reach out to my hurting heart
Gently wiping away the tears
Comforting my weary soul
Why do I look to any one else?
They are never there when I am In need
. . . But You are!
Time and time again, You
Remind me to look only to You
and not to others
In Your presence I feel warmth,
Peace and assurance that all is well.
Something I don’t feel anywhere else
You allow me to cry, You don’t condemn
Me for doing so.
You chase away my fears.
I try to stand strong, holding to what Your Word tells me
But after the long grueling day is done,
I collapse from the stress that has worn so heavy upon me
I am not strong, as I long to be,
Without You I could not have
Gone as far as I have.
So when I fall from the strain
I know You are there, not condemning me but
Comforting me, picking me up and guiding me
Because of Your love and compassion
Is why I am still
Quietly I sit listening
To what You have to say to my spirit
Warmth pours over me
I feel loved more than I ever have.
