Lonesome Want

How long Oh Lord …How long must I wait?
Or does my time fall vain?
My pleas fall to begging…Every night I entreat…
As my heart lay in twain.
Empty are these arms that long…To know a warm embrace…
As my eyes drowned in tears.
That I will forever lay…with lonely spirit yearning…
Is the ache that fuels my fear.
It is not meet…that one should walk lonely…
These Your very words.
Would that You could see fit…In Your perpetual mercy…
A mate for me afford.
I am fully persuaded… that You hear my every cry.
Lord You supply my every need.
That You would impart …a rested peace in my heart…
That this my lonesome want be granted me.

Artist's Description

Even as I finished this writing, my heart so heavy and my spirit so low…Ecclesiastes came to my mind…and there my heart found a solace … “A time to get and a time to lose…A time to keep and a time to cast away…”3:2 For those who know the Lord…you know He sees us in every situtation and it was HIs way of comfort for me by bringing to thought the words in Ecclesiastes… :O)
