Love Alone

I’m not quite meeting my “one a day” posting hopes about Utah. While I have much of the posts already written out in a travel journal, it takes time to translate them into intelligible English. I’m in the middle of studying for a massive midterm and other school projects, so I’ll return with renewed vigor to my Utah series in a couple of days.

I’m listening to this song right now by Caedmon’s Call. It seems appropriate with all the cares and the burdens of life weighing down on me. God, regardless of circumstances I know you are there, and I am forgiven.

LOVE ALONE
LONG LINE OF LEAVERS
CAEDMON’S CALL

No one would love me
if they knew all the things I hide
My words fall to the floor
As tears drip through the telephone line

And the hands I’ve seen raised to the sky
Not waving but drowning all this time
I’ll try to build an ark that they need
To float to you upon the crystal sea

Give me your hand to hold
‘Cause I can’t stand to love alone
And love alone is not enough to hold us up
We’ve got to touch your robe
So swing your robe down low
Swing your robe down low

The prince of despair’s been beaten
But the loser still fights
Death’s on a long leash
Stealing my friends to the night

And everyone cries for the innocent
You say to love the guilty too
And I’m surrounded by suffering and sickness
So I’m working tearing back the roof

And the pain of the world is a burden
And it’s my cross to bear
And I stumble under all the weight
I know you’re Simon standing there
And I know you’re standing there

Give me your hand to hold
‘Cause I can’t stand to love alone
And love alone is not enough to hold us up
We’ve got to touch your robe
So swing your robe down low
Swing your robe down low

    Wonderful!

    By the time I got to the last stanza it was beginning to sound like an old Southern Spiritual…
