Forgive me for complaining Lord
And I thank You for this day,
But Iím feeling sad and lonely Lord
With friends and family far away.

Oh, I know that You are with me
And I thank You so very much
But what Iím needing now Lord,
Is a loving human touch.

I long to see a loving face
Smiling back at me
And hear a familiar voice
And not just their memory.

Itís hard to be alone Lord
But I guess You know that too,
For I know You have a longing
For Your children to come to You.

So, I'll spend this day with You Lord
And I know it will be just fine,
For I know, in all this world
No truer friend than You Iíll find.
