I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No no no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
Said You'd be there
And though I haven't seen You
Are You still there?

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

And though I cannot see You
And I can't explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You've placed in my life

We cannot separate
'Cause You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

We cannot separate
You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

    She is definitely singing about God. I guess it is possible for someone else to think of a different person, but this song was written to God. She get's the "I'll trust the unseen" from 2 Corinthians 4: 18 For we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is not seen. Also a good verse is the definition of faith: Acts 17: 11 faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.

    As a Christian who walked with God so closley for most of my adult life, I let my daily life and routines allow me to drift slowley away from God, so suttle that I did not even relize how far away, went through a nasty divorce after 21 years of marriage, unevenly yoked myself in another bad relationship for 4 years, My father died in the midst of all of this of cancer, and my whole world came crashing down. I learned what the pits of real serious depression was all about, had I not had my 3 girls, I probabily would have tried to just end my misery. Then in church I heard this song and read the lyrics as we sang it, and I got it! I had pulled myself so far away from God that I no longer felt his presence, but I clung to these words and in just a matter of moments, I knew, I left him, he never left me! Jesus can't leave once you invited him to take residence in your heart, and no matter how you feel. You are never alone: O) praise god for that! My outlook on God and my life is so much better now, and knowing what I know, I don't see the pits of depression haunting me in my future.

    When we are despated, in the middle of lifes tragedies we can't see jesus, we may not feel jesus, we may feel alone, we may feel he is not answering, but somewhere deep inside as a believer we know that is not true. We know that we are never alone and even though we do not see him and feel he is invisible he is here. When my dad died, he was there. Through every miscarriage he was there. Even when I was angry at him, he was there.

    To me this means that even though we can not see or feel god we will always know he is there through every step in life. Sometimes we pray and expect and answer from god right away but in some cases he gives us signs but we just do not open our eyes, or when he does give us an answer we choose to not listen to it because we do not like the answer. Moral of the song trust in the lord for he is always there.

    I think that it means that even we are in the darkest places in our life, those times that we feel alone that we arn't that God is right there wrapping his arms of protection and love over us. I know that when me and my boyfriend broke up I felt so alone when there were people all around, but the Lord came and held me tight. Not to say a few hugs from my girls didn't help. But just because God is silent doesn't mean he isn't there.
