Close To Thee


Close To Thee

In gratefulness and thankfulness I stand
in Your Presence this day
I want to always love and serve You
and Your commands always to obey.
On this earth, which is our training ground
we see the evil all around
But You tell us not to worry because
Your love doth abound.
Out of our heart flows the living water
that cleanses and makes clean
All that come to You repenting
You have promised to intervene...
What a wondrous love we have received
from God who loves us so
How can we ever comprehend and
stay in this wondrous flow?
By faith we know Your Spirit
dwells within to show us the way
That we may better serve Thee
with every passing day...
So today I hold my head up
and proclaim for all to see
That I belong to You, LORD
and You will keep me close to Thee!

"However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no
ear has heard, no mind has conceived what
God has prepared for those who love Him."
1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV
