I wish to share a poem with you today that was developed to be a song. Yet, I have never gotten around to composing a melody for it. In the meantime, may you find value in the words. This song is about searching for God without realizing that this is what is missing from your life.
I’ve been running on empty for too long
Lord, hear the hollow reverb of my song
All You’ve ever given is now gone,
I am quite spent and all alone
Lord, hear my plea
and answer me,
Turn your ear to hear
and draw me near
Lord, I’ve been searching for someone
in a multitude of faces come and gone
Why is it that I never seemed to know
it was You I looked for high and low
Lord, I have come through many a trial
I’ve been tried and tested and it took a while
But I’ve discovered that only with trust
my life gains renewed momentum and thrust.
You have placed a new song in my heart
You have granted me a brand new start
Emptiness has been filled up with love
consistently replenished from above.
