I don’t know what to say,
I’m not sure what to do,
I feel like I’ve been left;
I’m no where without You.

I reach out for an answer,
But am I reaching out too far?
Every time I pull my hand back,
I find another scar.

Am I trying too hard on my own?
Am I looking in the wrong place?
God I need You and I want You,
But here am I, this disgrace.

When I think I’m doing better,
It’s then I feel so lonely.
I call to You in longing,
Singing, God, if only…

If only I could see Your face,
If only I could touch You.
If only, God, if only,
But You know what to do.

Trusting You’s not easy,
But it’s something I must do.
I know You have it planned out,
You’ve got the perfect view.

So God, I admit this shyly,
For I feel the guilt inside,
Though I try pitifully to hide it,
You know each tear I’ve cried.

So God I ask You,
Take this sin away.
I fess up to my failure,
‘Tis to You I pray.

I’m sorry, God, forgive me?
I know You have already.
I know I won’t do perfect,
I’ve proven I’m unsteady.

But I’ll stand up when I fall down,
As I have done just of now.
I promise, God, I’ll give You,
All I am, somehow.
