He Is Always There

In the silent night, He is there
In the midst of thunder, He is there
In the cold north wind, He is there
In the darkest cave, He is there
In the loneliest dungeon
In the lion’s den
In the fiery furnace
He is always there
On the threshing floor
On the mountaintop
On the gathering clouds
He is always there
He is in the burning bush
He is in the fire by night
He is in the cloud by day
He is always there
When trouble comes.  When none stands with you
When darkness is all about.  He is right there beside you
Bow your head.  Fall to your knees in His presence
Let Him lift you up.  Let Him be your strength
He will always be with you
He will never leave you
He is right there beside you
He is always there

You Are Always Near

I have wandered in the desert one too many times
I’ve been way down in the valley of despair
So many storms have raged inside my weary mind
Yet I always know that you are near

I know that you are near
Because you whisper in my ear
You tell me everything will be all right
And in the deepest darkness
You help me find my way
My path becomes much clearer by your light

I can trust you, Lord at all times
I can trust you will help me through
I can trust you will take me by the hand
I can trust I will never be without you

I will never be without your mercy
I will never be without your grace
I will never be without your endless love
I will never leave your tender embrace

So, when I wander in the desert, you will guide me
In the valley you’ll remove my fear
When the storms come you will bring me rainbows
And I’ll know that you are always near

It’ Been A While

It’s been a while since I knelt bedside my bed and prayed
It’s been a while since I opened up the book and read
It’s been a while since I lifted up my arms in praise
But you have been here all along with your amazing grace

It’s been a while since I listened for your words of love
It’s been a while since I thought about your throne above
It’s been a while since I realized you are enough
But you have been there all the time with your redeeming love

Oh God, I miss my talks with you
The fulness of my walks with you
Oh God, I’ve moved so far away from you
Please help me find a way back to your unfailing grace
Have mercy on me now, my Lord, I pray

It’s time to kneel down by my bed to pray
And read the words of your amazing grace
I need to lift my arms and give you praise
For you have been right by me all the way

I soon forget that you are near
And that my prayers you always hear
I must remember that you love me all the time
Help me to see you by my side
Help me to know that you abide
Speak to my heart and open up my simple mind

Oh God, I miss my talks with you
The fulness of my walks with you
Oh God, I’ve moved so far away from you
Please help me find a way back to your unfailing grace
Have mercy on me now, my Lord, I pray
Have mercy on me now, my Lord, I pray

Constant

The temperature goes where nobody knows
Unpredictable highs followed by lows
Even experts predict as part of a show
But they only prove that they do not know

My days seem to bounce up and down like a ball
One day I am happy, the next sorrow for all
I try to pick up, but find that I fall
I can’t even hear when my Savior does call

And others seem likely to be just the same
It’s like being different is some kind of game
One day they smile and the next they give blame
I never do know if they’re crazy or sane

But there is one thing that is constant and true
The love of my Savior will always come through
His friendship is there in the midst of the storm
He’ll walk with my daily and help keep me calm

He brings the sun up and sets it back down
He places the stars and He waters the ground
He causes the waves to come back to the shore
He brings the lightning and thunder that roars

His grace always covers my multiple sins
His mercy comes running and soothes me within
I can’t walk a step where His peace stays behind
And the joy that He gives will never run dry

Oh, the great love of Jesus is kind and it’s real
He’s faithful to be there when life takes a spill
He’ll always uphold me and always defend
His love is constant all the way to the end

It Only Takes a Moment

I haven’t been spending enough time with you, Lord
My days seem to fill up real fast
With work and with leisure
It seems so much easier
To let the day drift on past

I wake up each morning with tasks I must do
So, I get busy right away
Before I can look up
I have filled up my cup
And there’s no time for you in the day

But it only takes a moment
It only takes a second
To cry out to you in prayer
It only takes a whisper
An ear that’s tuned to listen
Then I hear your sweet voice in my ear

It’s time that put my priorities straight
You’re always there waiting for me
Each day I’ll arise
With a tear in my eye
Because I know you’re here with me

For it only takes a moment
It only takes a second
To cry out to you in prayer
It only takes a whisper
An ear that’s tuned to listen
Then I hear your sweet voice in my ear

One minute to pray, each and every day
One second to lift up my eyes
One look at your word, each cry will be heard
You’re presence will light up the skies

For it only takes a moment
It only takes a second
To cry out to you in prayer
It only takes a whisper
An ear that’s tuned to listen
Then I hear your sweet voice in my ear

Come Into His Chamber

Come into the Kings Courts
His Son has invited you
And He awaits your presence
He desires to clothe you
With royal garments
Of Mercy, Grace and Truth 
He desires to fill you
With fruit from His table
Love, peace and joy
He delights in your presence
He delights in your praise
He desires to have you close to Him
At all times
His table is spread out
A banqueting table with more than you can imagine
he wants you to feast at His banqueting table
Feast until you are fill
Of all the wonderful things He has for you
Come
Come into His Chamber 
Come into the King of Kings
And Lord of Lords 
He awaits your presence

All Over Me

How can we know we’re your children?
How can I know I’m your son?
How can I know that your work in me
Has only just begun?

How can I know the goodness that you have bestowed on me
Will be a blessing to others that belong to your family?

It’s your presence, Lord
Your presence in me
A holy anointing that’s all over me
Wherever I go. Whoever I meet
Will feel that anointing that’s all over me

How can I share this good news that you have brought liberty?
How can I share this compassion that you have rained down on me?
Every day in every way this world is looking at me
To see if I have the courage to speak and set captives free

It’s your presence Lord
Your presence in me
Your Holy Spirit that’s all over me
I walk in your goodness overflowing with love
Everyone will know that your all over me

Every word I speak. Everything I do
Every one I meet is a chance to prove
That your glory shines in the heart of man
Let your kingdom come through my life again

It’s your presence, Lord
Your presence in me
A holy anointing that’s all over me
Wherever I go. Whoever I meet
Will feel that anointing that’s all over me

Surrounded by the Glory

I’m surrounded by the glory of the Lord
He’s in the still of night
In the stars so bright
I’m surrounded by the glory of the Lord
He’s in everything I see

For His glory overwhelms His creation
His glory is above the universe
His glory brings the heavens down on it’s knees
In surrender to our soon and coming King

His glory and His majesty timeless
Throughout all history they do proclaim
That the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit
Are right here beside me everyday

I’m surrounded by the glory of the Lord
He’s in the still of night
In the stars so bright
I’m surrounded by the glory of the Lord
He’s in everything I see

Oh, the glory.  Oh, the splendor
Oh, the majesty overwhelms me
Oh, the glory.  Oh the splendor
His love always there for me

His Presence Is All I Need

I cried to the Lord in my weakness
He heard me and rescued me
Out of the darkness
Into the light
His presence is all I need

He heard me in my tribulation
His mercy uplifted me
Up from the valley
Out of my plight
His presence is all I need

When He’s near me I feel His glory
When He’s near me I know His peace
When He’s near me His joy overwhelms me
His presence is all I need

What a wonderful thing is His presence
My Savior is near to me
What a joy to abide in amazing grace
His presence is all I need

I will rest today and not worry
Sweet Jesus will walk with me
He has promised He’ll never forsake me
His presence is all I need

My Child

When I woke up this morning, I heard Jesus
He was calling out my name loud and clear
I rose up from my bed and said I’m here Lord
Please speak your words of comfort in my ear

He said I love you son
I said I love you Lord
He said I’m with you everywhere you go
He said I’ll lead you, Son
I said I’ll follow, Lord
He said You’re my child forevermore

As I go about my daily preparation
I keep listening to hear the words He says
If we block out all the noise that this world offers
We can know His voice is there throughout the day

He says I’ll heal you son
I say forgive me Lord
He says I forgave all your sins upon the cross
He says I’ll give you peace
I say my words of praise
He says you’re my child forevermore

My child I’m with you in the darkest moments
My child I’m with you in the raging storm
My child I’ll lift you up out of the valley
And set your feet on the solid ground

He said I love you son
I said I love you Lord
He said I’m with you everywhere you go
He said I’ll lead you, Son
I said I’ll follow, Lord
He said You’re my child forevermore
