Spoken World

singer-songwriter / sojourner

LOVE

 

there's a joy to honesty

that most can't relate

 

an openness that leaves us

feeling all estranged

 

tangible feelings

we try to ignore

or misappropriate

 

 

and it's eating at my hopes

it's eating at my dreams

 

I want to love somebody

as much as You have loved me

 

though I know in this life

there are no guarantees

 

 

bone of my bone

flesh of my flesh

 

I've been wondering

have we ever met

 

if we did I don't know

that I'd know if we had

 

 

and I'm sick and I'm tired of wondering

 

my father says that I won't have to eventually

 

 

I try to keep my mind on Christ

not the comforts of this life

 

to love at all costs to myself

and to fight the good fight

 

but with no one by my side

 

 

each day gets harder as I go

and You say it's not good for us

to be alone

 

but if I am to be

it is well with my soul

 

 

'cause I am not who I used to be

I am a new creation

I am redeemed

 

it's nothing

that I have to see

to believe

 

 

but at times it still seems

that it's all still on me

 

even though You said

it is finished up on that tree

 

 

it's hard to take

being told to pray

 

when what i feel

it seems that no words can say

 

Thank God Your Spirit

intercedes for me

 

 

for every tear

and every sigh

 

that tends to keep

my troubled

 

heart up at night

 

I rest in Your promises

I know that you're by

 

my side

 

 

Hallelujah

You set me free

 

Hallelujah

I don't need anything

 

in You I am complete
