In my sadness, I looked away, from everyone but You, Lord
And the memories I didn’t have, of a family’s love so true, Lord
I even broke my heart again, pining for my past
Even though I have today, the memories made me sad.
The shame confused me and covered me up
Though I looked to You to fill my empty cup.
In my desperation, I asked You why
Everything seemed awful; why my soul just cries
You gently said, “My daughter, I was here for you each day
And as your loving Father, I kept you when you strayed.
Jesus is your big brother; since you were born again
He gave you peace in turmoil, every time you needed Him.
It’s just when you look back, at evil’s tricks toward you
That you see all the agony of the love you never knew,
But isn’t My love better, than all the world’s combined
And don't you know how special you are now that you’re Mine?
