if solitude is time alone with God
what holds me back?
when I am tired, Lord, hear my prayer—
there is too much to do and too little time to do it
when I am a cynic, Lord, hear my prayer—
there are things I have tried, and they have failed,
I see a pattern in me and those around me
when I am busy, Lord, hear my prayer—
there are people who need me, hold claim:
who will take care of them?
seeking solitude to be with you Lord, hear my prayer, to live simply
