I go to church every Sunday,
and start waiting for it the next Monday.
So I guess by now I should have learned,
that You alone have always yearned.
To be the One I come to most,
the one and only, Holy Ghost.
In my fright I did not see,
When you, O Lord, snuck up to me.
When I asked, “Where have you been?”
You replied, “With you, always.”
