With Me

“The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, A prayer to the God of my life.” – Psalm 42:8, NASB

Weary, empty I cry out
to You, the One who fills
Restless and pained I reach out
for Your comforting embrace.
Life. It troubles me sometimes.
Valleys low, rivers deep
I cling. Seeking safety, peace
Direction through stubborn storms.
Fretful, uncertain, alone
I wait for You ~
Your loving hands that lift, Your
Tender touch, gentle presence.
And while I’m aching, looking
Faithfully You respond
Consistently You reveal
That in my night, You’re with me.
Your songs awaken my mind
Your words steady my heart
What blessed relief You bring
You whom my soul loves, longs for.
With me, forever with me
Though sometimes I
feel alone. But always Lord
In night and day, You’re with me.

“‘… Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'” – Hebrews 13:5, NIV
