Lost Without You

God (Inspired by)

Oh glory, I am so lost without you,

a lamp without a bulb,

a candle without a flame.


My heart can become so dark

without your presence;

my soul shivered without your love.


I wasted all my energy

feuding with an enemy

that you already defeated.


I ran away from the one

who was my home

all to feel less alone.


But I returned to

the shadow of your wings,

the warmth of your embrace.
