well here I am
hanging out with my ole friend pain.
oh I doubt your nearness Lord
once I am faced with
rejection from a brother
isolation in the midst of a crowd
or painful scrutiny from believers.
why do I need to be told my value
from those who surround me
when I stare at the worth you’ve given me
in your Word.
the hairs on my head are numbered by you Lord
flood me with your Spirit
so I would feel the comfort you give
in this moment
and experience the freedom you give
now and forever.
