In Your Embrace

My life is like a winding trail
That wanders to and fro
Sometimes I am so close to God
And other times I fall
I want my walk much deeper
So He will be my all
Draw me to your side, Oh God

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

I don’t want to wander
Through this life anymore
I want to follow closely
To the path set by my Lord
Help me God to hear you
And to follow where you lead
That I may always be where I belong

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

His Watchful Ear

You go your way I’ll go mine
Is a phrase we often hear
Some people think the path they take
Escapes God’s watchful ear

But He hears every word you say
He sees the things you do
When you decide to turn your back
He calls right out to you

If you are on the cusp today
Not knowing where too turn
Ask Jesus  to come rescue you
For your heart He does yearn

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Cusp

So They Might

You are the potter, I am the clay
Mold me and shape me after your way
Make me a witness to others today
So they might see you, I pray

You are the vine and I am a branch
Teach me, dear Lord,  to follow your plan
Help me to witness throughout this land
So they might feel your hand

You are the shepherd and I am your sheep
Guide me to all your commandments keep
Help me to reach out to others needs
So they might know the love they reap

You are the Master, I follow you
Hoping that, daily, your love will show through
And you’ll get the praise for all you do
The glory belongs to you

I’ll lift your praises up high every day
I’ll give you the glory in every way
That others will come to know and be saved
This I will fervently pray

Hold Me Jesus

Hold me Jesus

Hold me close

In your loving arms

Keep me safe

From any danger

Keep me from all harm

 

Touch me Jesus

Touch me now

Heal me from this pain

Make me whole

In mind and body

Give me health again

 

You are such a merciful Savior

Always doing good for me

I can trust that all that happens

Is ordained so I can be

All that you would have me be.

 

Teach me Jesus

Teach me truth

From your Holy Word

Give me wisdom

Give me knowledge

So your truth I can discern

 

Guide me Jesus

Guide me now

On the proper path

Let me know

If I should wander

Bring me home at last

 

You are such a loving Savior

Always doing for my good

I can trust each day you give me

Will bring me right where it should

 

Glory be to you, sweet Jesus

Praise your mighty, holy name

I will worship you forever

Holy, Holy is your name

Holy, Holy is your name
