Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

The deafening sound of silence 

Screams from the corners of my loneliness 

Adrift in a sea of despair

Sorrow drowns my desolate heart


Tears soaking my pillow each night

Reminders there’s no one near to dry them

Monsters stalking, laughing, taunting

You are alone, not worthy to be loved


Day after day darkness deepens

Chains of hopelessness suffocate my soul

Strangling desires, optimism

Dreams, hope for a happier tomorrow




Before time existed on earth

Papa marvelously set me apart

Lovingly sculpting my being

Because I am the apple of His eye


Flag of surrender won’t be raised

Death’s prey snatched from evil’s wicked clutches

Grace flows over my dying soul

Strength, endurance, courage to forge ahead


I do not answer to victim 

Papa’s beloved my heavenly name

New creation, transformed, set free

The daughter of Almighty God
