When all around me silently
draw curtains close and rest,
and sun to bed at end of day
cast shadows from the west
You pull my soul towards Your heart
You beckon me to come;
and patiently wait for this time
When I can spare some love.
This quality time that we share,
The secrets You reveal –
Make my poor heart soar into space
Beyond my frail belief.
You do not worry how I’ve been
or what mischief I’ve done
as long as at the close of day
repentance I avow.
When day is done and shadows cast
it is that special time.
No matter how much darkness lurks
around me Your light shines.
You take away my worldly stress
and clothe me with Your strength,
make blossoms sprout where fear and doubt
have tried their best to reign.
And now I humbly bow my head
acknowledge You my Lord;
There is no other one like You
who knows me inside out.
Your Spirit hovers o’er my being
my soul in tight embrace
I’m lost in love, one with Your heart
rejoicing in Your grace.
