Forever does Your love endure,
and showers mercy every day,
I lonely and abandoned may appear,
empty of higher purpose or design,
in human isolation steer--
a burden heavy and malign.
Thus, unmet needs, desires unfulfilled
melt in fog, then disappear.
While all this mortal picture
emerges with a stinging bite,
ready to overturn the wheel of life,
You let me hear a whisper,
that present-- again-- You stand by me.
And, once more, filled with wonder,
I am humbled and amazed
at the witness of Your mighty hand.
