Katlyn came to me earlier this afternoon and said the Lord gave her another full song. Within 15 minutes she had it written out and a quick recording on my phone so she wouldn’t forget it. I’m in love with her relationship with Him and I’m totally blown away by her gift. This is the second song that has come to her in this way (though she’s written several songs over the years that I’m certain came from this same gift she has). She wants her songs to be a blessing to anyone who it might touch, so I’m sharing them before they’re in their finished product. ❤
I’m alone, I’m on my own,
with nothing left, I regret.
They cast me away, and they say,
“No on will love you, now get!”
I run away, from all my fears,
spend everything, for what doesn’t matter.
I try to forget, try not to care,
that there’s a happily ever after.
Then You reach out and call me close…
I’m just a girl, with nothin to offer,
and yet You say, “Come my dear daughter,”
I back away, afraid it’s not true, then
You say, “I truly love you.”
I sit alone, a humble beggar,
in the dank, dark, empty cellar.
I know, that no one cares,
that I’m alone, sitting there.
The stench so familiar, it feels like home.
I’ve been there again and again.
I’m on my own.
You say that you love me, but it’s like a dream.
Something so distant, I’d buy it again.
but I gave away, everything.
I’ve got nothin to give to the King.
Yet you pursue me, again and again.
I’m just a girl, with nothin to offer.
And yet You love me, and say, “I’m right here,” I pull out my pockets, there’s nothin left, then I say, “I can’t accept it I fear,”
You say, “I’ll be waitin right here.”
I look around, for some pay,
but then You hug me, and You say,
“Darling child, I love you,”
“But I’ve nothin’ today”
You pull me close and say, “I don’t care,”
but then I break away, “That isn’t fair!
I’ve done nothing to earn this.
Don’t get me wrong, sounds like bliss.
Don’t choose me my life is false.
Please go choose someone else.”
And You say, “But I love you, too.”
I am a girl, with nothin to offer,
but all I need, is my Father.
He loves me, for who I am.
So take that my doubts. I say, “BAM.”
