I could walk a million miles or swim a thousand seas I could climb the highest mountain or explore the oceans deep I could lift my hands in worship Sing a worship melody But the closest I can get you is down on my knees I could feed a hundred thousand or set the captives free I could help a man in trouble or cure a dread disease I could give to the less fortunate The blessings I’ve received That would not draw me closer than being down on my knees Down on my knees there is healing Down on my knees there is peace Down on my knees there are springs of joy Down on my knees I’m set free Down on my knees He will hear me Every time I cry out in prayer When I’m down on my knees for others I can know He is always right there Help me humble myself Put my flesh in its place Help me cry out to you Down on my knees in prayer
I want to be close to you
I want to be by your side
I want to know you’re near
In the darkest night
I want to hear your voice
Above the noise
I want to be close to you my Lord
Jesus you are my desire
Jesus you are my delight
Jesus you set my heart on fire
Draw me close to you
Draw me close to you
I have a tendency to wander. I am not sure why I wander away from God sometimes, but I do. I can easily find myself, all of a sudden, far from Him and I realize it is not where I want to be. I am lost amid a sea of doubt and confusion, of worry and sorrow. It is not a place I should be, but a place where I put myself. No one leads me there or takes me there. No one has come and convinced me it is the best place to be. I just make a decision to wander far off and I don’t want to be there. I want to be close to Him once again.
I want to be close to Him because that is where healing is. That is where deliverance is. That is where faith is, where peace is and where joy is. Next to Him is where I can rest, it is where my storms are stilled and where living waters flows. It is where I can eat of the bread of life and stand in the light. It is where I can once again find my way because He is the way. It is where love abides and where hope arises. Close to Him is where my desires are fulfilled and where my dreams come true. It is where the found of blessing is and where mercy is always extended. Grace is at His footstool and glory at His throne. I never want to leave His side.
James 4:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
