I lit a thousand candles and I prayed a thousand prayers
I kneeled beside my bed for seven years
And I walked through every chapel door sang every Baptist hymn
And I accounted for my each and every sin

But Lord you never carried me or put me on your path
And you never filled my heart with happiness
You never came to comfort me when I was in distress
So in the midnight of my soul I've come to rest

It was all I ever asked for, the love of the Lord
But it never came

Through fire and through brimstone I have wandered down this road
To find a speck of light in the shadow
Through cold and lonely winter I have waited for your call
But the spirit never moved my heart to thaw

I wanted in the Kingdom but I'm stuck outside the gates
And Gabriel's horn won't carry me away
Salvation is a Country Club with dues I cannot pay
So the beggar in my soul has come to stay

It was all I ever asked for, the love of the Lord
But it never came
So I'll wait, forever hoping that He will show me
His mysterious ways
