Lord, please.......

Lord, I’m so tired and so hungry.
Lord, I’m hungry even now as I pray.
I don’t know if anything matters
I just barely keep living each day.

O’ Lord, I feel lost and surrounded.
I don’t know what else to do but pray.
Lord, I don’t know if you can hear me at all,
but I’ll keep praying to you day after day.

Somebody told me about Jesus.
They said He’d me my very best friend.
I asked them when would I meet Him?
They said, “Maybe now or maybe not till the end.”

Please Lord, can you hear me? I’m calling.
Please Lord, can you hear what I say?
I’m lost and I’m looking for answers!
O’ Lord, please light up my way.

“Child, I feel your every heartbeat
and I hear every thought…every word.
You have only to ask…and I’m with you.
We’re together forever in The Word.
But the world is yours to travel,
I made sure it was yours to contend.
Stand up! Be strong and be kind.
I’m waiting for you…here at the end.”
