The troubles of this world had weighed my heart down,
Until I thought I'd lost the treasures that once I had found.
The pain I went through had made my heart numb,
Looking at myself, I didn't like what I had become.
I cried, Jesus, I miss You, Your hand within mine,
Without You, my life has no rhyme.
The days are dark, the nights are long,
Oh Lord, please take me home, where I belong.
It had been so long since I talked to you, I didn't know how to pray,
This heart was so broken, the words got in the way.
Then tears fell from my eyes like a cleansing, cooling rain,
I felt you reach deep inside and take away all my pain.
I cried, Jesus, I missed You, Your hand within mine,
Because of You my life now has rhyme,
Days may be dark, nights may be long,
Yet I have peace because I'm home, where I belong.
