    Today I was walking along my merry way
    And lonliness tried to cross my pathway

    For a moment I entertained her siren call
    I almost got tricked into going in for the fall

    But I quickly caught myself before I stumbled
    For I will no longer give lonliness a tumble

    That feeling of lostness and confusion,
    like your very life is just an intrusion

    No longer am I walking around in a daze
    Trapped inside of a neverending maze

    Through a grace that is sure to amaze
    I was able to step out of that lonely phase

    I had to come to a complete understanding,
    an enlightment of whose hand I am holding

    Once I understood in whose image I was made
    I was able to step into the light out of the shade

    Comprehending that He'd never leave nor forsake me
    So in His loving arms I could never in lonliness truly be

    So when lonliness approached me today & any other day
    I'll still be able to continue on my blessed merry way
