devotional thought: he is a comfort to the lonely

'only the lonely'

should this whole world fade away

with lovers lost

and friends no more

if every good was gone

with joy removed

and hope forgotten

you would still be true

you would always be

you would never leave

you would still want me

so still my lonely heart

and ease my wounded soul

remind me who you are

remind me who you are

  1. This reminds me of Habakkuk 3:17-18, a favorite passage:

    "Though the fig tree should not blossom,
    nor fruit be on the vines,
    the produce of the olive fail
    and the fields yield no food,
    the flock be cut off from the fold
    and there be no herd in the stalls,
    yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
    I will take joy in the God of my salvation."
