When in our loneliness, lost without comfort,
homeless, abandoned, when hope has all gone;
God speaks through history, the words still disturb us:
'this is your home and you must carry on'.

When our depression has mirrored that exile,
hope is diminished and love drains away;
even in company emptiness haunts us,
clouds remain shrouding the dawn of each day.

Verses 3-4 follow
