OH LONELY TREE
Oh lonely tree out in the field
How do you stand so tall and full
Where no river runs by you
How do your leaves produce such blooms?
Oh lonely tree out in the meadow
Grasses green and flowers pink
Your loveliness comforts me
I want to curl up beneath your canopy.
Oh lonely tree out in the pasture
Branches reaching toward the heavens
Are you praying to your Maker
Are you worshiping your Savior?
Oh lonely tree out in the prairie
Your roots grow deep to depths uncertain
Somehow I think you understand
Who gives you life and makes you grand.
Oh lonely friend feeling like a tree forgotten
Let your roots grow deep in His living water
Spread your branches high into the sky
Feeling God’s love showered from on high.
Oh lonely friend out in the field
Remember God is with you still
He hears every tiny sigh you make
He sees every time you lift your praise.
God has never abandoned you
No matter how many others do
He sent His Spirit to live inside
To be your Comforter and your Guide.
If you feel lonely here’s what you do
Pray to God to see you through
Reach out to others who may be in need
Of the shade and shelter Your Father brings.
Oh lonely tree and friend out in the meadow
Don’t be like the weeping willow
Soak in the rays of your Maker’s light
Abide and rest in His matchless love.
The grasses green and the flowers pink
Come to play and keep you company
You’re not as alone as you may think
Even in the night the moon and stars wink.

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!
1 Chronicles 16:11
Oh Lord, remind us to remember that You care. Even when we are at our loneliest, we believe no one else is thinking about us or loves us; Lord, help us to seek You with all our hearts, minds and souls.
Even the loneliest of trees—way out in the furthest parts of the earth where nothing else seems to exist—flourishes. Those trees only flourish because of You Lord. So let us flourish under Your hand of protection and care, no matter where we may be planted in this season of life.
From My Heart to Yours,
