In Your Presence

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.
