This night more than ever
In my heart is loneliness only You can sever
Never have I felt more alone than now
To move away from this plane, please show me how.
I’ve sought happiness in the wrong places
Compromised in this world of transient graces;
Satisfaction found is but the fleeting kind
How I long to leave it all behind.
My weakness causes me pain; it shrivels my soul in shame
But Lord, You stand by me and never lay on me the blame;
As tears of pain and regret fall from my eyes each night
I can feel Your arms wrapped around me, holding me tight.
You give me comfort like no one else can
You listen to my troubled heart over and over again
You always shine Your light on my way
When no one would give me the time of day.
This night I will find rest in your gentle embrace
Enfold me in your love, in your strength, and everlasting grace.
And should the last breath be taken in the gloom of midnight,
May Your eternal peace encompass me like an everlasting light.
