Lord it seems to me that love   
  And loneliness go hand and hand
Where there is love  
  Loneliness isn’t fare behind
I believe it started in the garden

 

In love you made man,   
  You gave him food to eat   
But he chose the forbidden fruit  
  You gave him a brother to love   
But he chose to kill him 

 

And you were left all alone

 

Because you loved him   
  You made him a world to live in
But he made you destroy it 
  You gave him a mind to think
But he made plans against you

 

And you were left all alone

 

Because you love him   
  You gave him freedom from bondage   
But he chose to worship a cow   
  You made him a homeland
But he rejected you as King 

 

And you were left all alone

 

Because you loved him 
  You sent him your Word  
But he chose to ignore it
  You even sent him your Son
But he chose to kill him

 

And you were left all alone

 

Because you loved me   
  Lord, you made me 
You gave me food to eat   
  And a world to live in   
You gave me a brother to love

 

And a mind to think
  You gave me freedom 
And a need for a king
  You gave me your Word
And you gave me your Son

 

Lord; please help me to never leave you alone
