There is a longing in my heart
That has been forever there
I don’t know how it got its start
I can only guess from where.
I’ve begged the Lord to help me out
As oftentimes I feel lost
I find myself quite full of doubt
No way now to count the cost.
I am the sum of all my fears
In truth I possess a few
I’ve laughed and cried a million tears
All of them seemed overdue.
