Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

by night on my bed I sought him
he whom my soul loveth so
I sought but I could not find him
and now I will rise and go

out in the streets of the city
and out on the broad highway
for he whom my soul so loveth
hath left me and gone away

(instrumental)

and then in the dawn I saw him
he whom my heart loveth so
I found him, held him, and told him
I never could let him...

(words by Joe Becker, music by Doug Howell)
3 Jan 1978

I've been looking for a person
I can always turn to when I'm down
looking for someone who doesn't care
that I'm a clown
looking for a special friend—
like the one that I just found

I've been searching for Jesus for so long
it don't seem real
I've been searching in places that I
never could reveal
all I found was heartaches
looking everywhere for love
but when I finally found the Lord
then I finally found love

now I've stopped my running
I don't have to look for happiness no...

29 Jan 1976

it's so easy to hide the ugliness inside
beneath the clothes we wear, beneath the things we do
I was always afraid I wouldn't make the grade
so I learned to do the things I was expected to
I never knew

when I was young I used to play hide and seek
and I grew up hiding from everyone I'd meet
like a child, I long for someone to find me
searching in the streets
then Jesus came and found me
He threw His arms around me
now I don't have to hide anymore

it's so easy to make the commonplace mistake
of seeing who we are as who we'd like to be
...

it's a pity
you say you can't find
a good enough reason
to believe anymore
it's such an art
the way you've learned
yourself to close your eyes
to the answers
you once searched for

you've got it all worked out so
you don't have to depend on anyone
well it might seem like a foolproof plan
but it's a fool who wants to live a life without love

anyone can see it's a shame
you've got your own set of
questions to which no one
could begin to reply
and you're so sure of yourself
and your philosophy you laugh
inside each...

all her silver's sittin'
in a row on the shelf
along with a fine-carved wood
how I wish she could have made it
she always wanted the good things
and now they've got her

she's got a golden car with a
six on the floor and
shoes for every day of the year
will she ever hear the children?
she used to bend down and touch them
now she just looks down

yesterday she could see the world
the way a child alone can see
and I can remember how she used to
smile at me but today she could only
cry

she told me she'd had enough of God

so many roads to choose from
I don't know which way to go
is there a map to help me
out of this mess I'm in?
when will my life begin?

tell me where the sky is
show me where the sun shines
tell me where the love is
that they talk about
on Sunday afternoons

so many roads to follow
I'd be in desperation
but since I put my faith in God
I have peace inside
knowing he's by my side

I know where I'm going
and I know he's always there
tell him that you trust him
and his love will flow
don't go on alone

oh, you know...

Apr 1982

if I’m meant to live my life alone
I know you’ll give me the strength to be on my own
knowing I’m your own is enough for me
but if there should be something more to your plan
than I can see from where I stand
and if there should be one special hand to hold
please tell me

where is the woman you meant for me
to cling to and sing to
where is the girl who could make my life more complete in you
if it’s true that there’s someone waiting for me
where could she be

you’re the one who said
it is not good for man to be...
