I hungered for You
tonight Lord, in the
darkness of my lonely

For I felt the pains of
loneliness which most
times accompanies a
quiet gloom

I felt the harsh pains of
separation, because I did
not have that of which I
daily need

So I called to You with
much fervent prayer, to
bring Your special love
I need to me

But no answer found its way
to my hearts door, and what
was now locked so securely

Would never be found
to begin to change the
complexion of my brand
new day

For maybe I committed
a dreadful sin ,or was it
something I forgot to do
or say

I only know I am unhappy
tonight because You are
far away from where I now

Remember me this night
my God, and do not
hesitate to send me a
sweet taste

Of the heaven which lives
deep within Your well of
love, and I promise not a
drop I will waste

For what I find to live
deep within my heart I
pray my Lord to always stay

So I pray intently to You
as my new day begins, You
will once again come my way.
