The Soul Of A Century/I am so lonely
I AM SO LONELY
I am so lonely, God above,
Like the pear-tree yonder;
Fear and sorrow hand in hand,
Through my sad soul wander.
In the pear-tree, God above,
At least the birds are singing;
While despair and agony
Through my soul are ringing.
You pour your sunshine, God above,
Over the tree at will;
Have you not a single ray,
My darkened soul to fill?
