The Angel Stood Alone
Alone, am I alone
Why do I feel thus all alone,
Walking in a sea of people
Yet no-one hears my sigh
Or the words my heart may know.
Am I alone as I ponder
Am I alone as I stare,
Behind the shadows
Do I vaguely observe
Giving up the care.
I didn't see the hand of God reach down
With protection all around,
I walked with eyes downcast, for there was no warm sunshine
To encompass me about.
And thus I trudged along, for I couldn't hear the song,
Only a heavy feeling that everything was wrong,
Alone, yes all alone walking sadly in an empty sea,
No-one to hear my heart,
Or the cries that I may scream.
I couldn't feel the gentle touch of the angel sent with love,
I brushed aside the tenderness, the Father sent with softness from above.
Alone, am I standing all alone, as I ponder there,
All alone I stay and silently stare, within the shadows that I bear.
Softly I hear a whisper to gently open up the window of my heart,
And I begin to feel the tender breezes blow,
My eyes fill up with tears and overflow
As the morning light begins to creep into my soul.
Thank you Jesus did You come to die for me
Please fill up my emptiness with Your love
So I will be, nevermore alone.

I sought the Lord and He answered me
He delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to Him are radiant
their faces are never covered in shame.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those
who fear Him and He delivers them.
The Lord is close to the broken hearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit
Psalm 34: 4, 5,7 &18
