God speaks to me

when I'am alone

When hope is withering

and will's not strong

He speaks to me

through morning's light

or tucked in safely

in bed at night

He speaks to me

through homeless faces

And all world's children

He's blessed with graces

He speaks to me

in peace and war

And guides me through

the worst of storms

He speaks to me

when days grow dark

and solitude invades my heart

When off at work

or driving home

He whispers softly

"you're not alone"

He is always present

I feel Him near

No need to worry

He'll seize my fears

When he is near me

I feel no sorrow

And let's me know

there's a tomorrow
