Is being alone really lonely?
How do I stand alone?
I am physically alone
But I am not spiritually alone
I know GOD you are with me
This I do believe within me
Looking out this window
I see so much YOU created for all to see
I want to share this view with the one YOU have chosen for me
I want to be loved
I want to be touched
I want to be cherished
I don’t want to be alone, LORD
I know these walls have many faces
Now empty with so much space
Forgive me for all I have done that was a disgrace
My thoughts consume me
I must renew my mind, carnal I cannot be
Will it be LORD, just you and me?
Longing to know what you will have me be
I desire to be his help mate
To the godly man you have chosen for me
What I know you have created me to be
I wait on YOU LORD
I shall never stand alone
I know I am under YOUR wings at YOUR side
As I try to not silently cry inside
For he is worth the wait
YOU won’t forsake me
Therefore I dream of holding his hand
Anticipating you LORD upholding us in YOUR hands
I will continue to stand with YOU
Believing in love, that can come true LORD, YOU would never leave me feeling so blue
I trust your promises are all true
Cause it will forever and always be, me and YOU
