on the gift of solitude....

Perhaps some future day, Lord, Thy strong hand
Will lead me to the place where I must stand
Utterly alone.

Alone, O Gracious Lover, but for Thee;
I shall be satisfied if I can see
Jesus only.

I do not know Thy plan for years to come,
My spirit finds in Thee its perfect home,

Lord, all my desire is before Thee now,
Lead on, no matter where, no matter how-
I trust in Thee.

-Elisabeth Elliot
