You Alone

by Melissa Kaesberg

Lord, I reach out for You.
You are the Way, the Life and the Truth.
In the growing shadows, You are my Light
and in a world full of wrong, You are the only Right.
Your love is pure, Your love is true,
surpassing all boundaries of what we thought we knew.
Lord, I look for You.
I turn my head and there You are.
You never leave me, from my side You are never far.
Only You can I trust completely,
only by You am I loved unconditionally.
Lord, I listen for Your voice.
Yours is the guidance and the wisdom I seek.
Your arms only give me the comfort I need,
only You can give me the peace that I seek.
Lord, I call out to You.
Wondering never if You are listening.
I needn’t hear Your voice to know that You hear mine,
my prayers reach You up to heaven every time.
I know that You hear me and I know only You know me,
You alone give me everything I need.
Lord, I wait for You.
Only Your timing is perfect timing,
You alone know what is best.
Your word is the only word that is true,
I know no harm will ever come from You.
Only with You am I safe,
only You will never forsake.
Lord, I love you truly.
You are the only One who has ever been there,
and the only One who ever will.
There exists no worry that You will ever leave,
and I am reminded when I hear You say, “Be still.”
You are my only Forever, the only One I can believe,
there is no other I can depend on, there is no one else 
who is completely for me.
I’ve never been loved so purely, so deeply,
despite the fact that I fall short.
I’ve never had a more important, meaningful, amazing relationship,
than that which I have with my Father, my Lord.
