Sometimes there's a loneliness we cannot hide
deep down we feel this ache inside
an emptiness we cannot fill
a heaviness within until...
Broken, we reach out in prayer
knowing not whether you are there
And yet, each time a peace descends
and from the ache a warmth transcends
Oh give us faith, enough to say
it is us who turns the other way
ignoring your love we go it alone
and with every step our heart turns to stone
We need your love to keep our hearts light
Our prayers help us turn our wrongs into right
your love fills us up, and heals all our pain
So I pray we'll never turn, away from you again
