December 1988


Madison Square


Jesus loves me this I know

for the Bible tells me so


we sing the words aloud


the Spirit of God with us

working through us

to lead us on to Him


that Spirit I dont feel

weeping on the inside

for what I couldnt have

I stand

unlike my friends around me

weeping for joy in the Lord


feeling lost, alone, and forgotten

I stood silent

how could I sing these songs of joy

knowing that for me

these words were false

Monique and Ron

my friends right beside me

have it right

as I hope that God

will soon allow me


People need the Lord

we hear a little later

and I

recalling an other friend

Brenda on the piano

cry at last



Peter, too,

needs the Lord
