THINGS I'VE NEVER KNOWN

I've never known a religion to be pure and undefiled
or a philosophy to follow for more than just a while;

I've never known a drug that could change the heart of man
and I've never known a cause for which I felt could stand.

I've never known a friend to be totally forgiving
and I've never known a hope to make life seem much worth living;

I've never known a love unconditionally bestowed
and I've never known a map to show a never ending road.

I've never known a sunset to be totally fulfilling
and I've never known a man to be always kind and willing;

I've never known a promise I believed could not be broken
and I've  never known a word of wisdom confidently spoken.

I've never known a power that could make a person whole
and I've never known a comfort that could calm a restless soul;

I've never known a freedom beyond a mere sensation
or someone I could trust without a moment's hesitation.

I've never known a happiness I felt could always last
and I've never known a future to not slip into the past.

I've never known a reason for why I came to be
and I've never known an answer to the questions haunting me;

But then I looked to Jesus and He proved that He alone
is sufficient in Himself to be the things I'd never known.
