Alone

Leo Long 1986 (Durban)



Alone stand I this solemn night, alone.
Alone I am the judge and witness, alone,
And I ask myself a question,
One I must answer to myself and by myself, alone,
“Am I ever alone?”

Alone; no one near… Alone?
Alone; not a friend to hear… Alone?
Alone; not a God to fear… Alone?
I ask myself, “Alone?”

Then think I; “there’s an all-seeing Eye…!”
And warmth returns, the Comforter is near.
To remembrance comes; “I will never leave you”… never.

Therefore stand I this solemn night alone,
Yea, alone with them that will stand alone,
Declaring that I am never alone!
