Only If

If only he could love me, Lord,
Half as much as You.
If only He could understand
The things You see me through.
If only he could hold me close,
As You have done before.
If only he could care for
The things You love me for.
If only he could share his life
With me as You would.
If only he could support me to
Do the things that are good.
If only he could save my day,
As You do every minute.
If only there were a world
Where both of You are in it.
Well, Lord, if he were anywhere
Near enough to You,
I wouldn’t have the things to love
That I’ve always found in You.
