I wandered weary and lost

through lonely streets

in winter nights

and summer heats.

I walked in darkness

all alone.

I looked for peace,

but hope was gone.

A long hard roads I walked,

cold it was, and dreary

on I struggled

afraid and weary.

Why me, I thought?

What have I done?

no one replied,

not even one.

I asked for help,

for someone to care

nobody answered

as though I wasn’t there.

on, on I walked.

in loneliness and pain.

If I could find an answer,

I would be free again.

As I walked one day

along a lonely lane.

I came across a chapel,

just standing in the rain.

It was a shabby

little place.

But it had

a certain grace.

Hanging on the wall,

was a tattered little sign.

All torn it was

and covered all in grime.

I walked across to see

what the sign could be.

The words were very simple

but they seemed to speak to me.

It said for all to see.

“Your God loves you”

Who is this God I thought,

and why should He love me?

What could I lose I thought

nothing more could harm me.

so I set forth,

to find the God who loves me.
