In Solitude

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Ruth Duck
Tune Name: PATON

Lyrics as Poetry

In solitude, in solitude,
I meet my God in prayer.
In silence and simplicity,
my spirit blossoms there.

Whene’re the world is troubling me
and stress is all around,
I seek the presence of my God,
and healing light is found.

In seasons of perplexity,
in times of deep despair,
I light a candle in the night
and seek my God in prayer.

And when my heart is burden’d down
with cares for those I love,
Too deep for words, with groans and sighs,
descends the holy dove.

With psalms and hymns and songs of praise
before my God I’ll come
till death itself is past and gone
and I arrive at home.

In solitude, in solitude,
I meet my God in prayer.
In silence and simplicity,
my spirit blossoms there.
