Into Your Arms

You have led me day and night
Through a long and stormy life
Kept me safe when trouble loomed
Gave me hope when I felt doomed

Every day you guide my steps
When I woke and when I slept
You were watching for my soul
Picked me up when I was low

I long to see your face
To be held in your embrace
From this world I need escape
Into your arms

Grace was strong when I fell down
All the way your love abounds
Mercy flowed down from your throne
You never left me alone

I could feel your constant joy
Caused my heart to overflow
Inner peace was always there
You went with me everywhere

I long to see your face
To be held in your embrace
From this world I need escape
Into your arms

Lord I want to see you
Lord I want to hear you
Lord I want to hold you
In my arms forever

I long to see your face
To be held in your embrace
From this world I need escape
Into your arms
In the end you’ll carry me
Up to heaven where I‘ll be
With you for eternity
Lifting up your name

  1. I feel your longing to see His face. it will be good to shed this mortal coil. This Sunday I heard a sermon about how God is with us comes from a Hebrew word which means being face to face. Pete, your closeness to Jesus is really being face to face with Him right now spiritually.
