The Shroud of Loneliness

One day when wrapped in loneliness' shroud
"Oh Jesus, help me!" I cried aloud,
"To escape from this suffocating gloom"
Which seemed to penetrate the whole room.

He came with all His love and care
In answer to my heartfelt prayer.
His "Sonshine" poured in warmth and light
Dispelling grief and sorrow's night.

My tears then changed to words of praise
For all His wonder-working ways.
Now I'm no longer imprisoned here,
But free to share some hope and cheer.
