Dear God, I listened … I waited … I hesitated …
I cried out for help … I remained unsure …
I tallied my options … I looked for a cure …
I focused my thoughts … I tried to Let Go …
I filled in the dots … I still didn’t know …
I look at this now … all the I’s in my list …
I humbly avow … there’s one eye I missed …
Your vision of all … clearly unclouded …
No need to forestall … how could I have doubted …
Omnicient … all knowing …
Omnipresent … ever here …
Omnipotent … all powerful …
My Lord … keep me near!
I Am Thine, O Lord
Text: Fanny J. Crosby, 1820-1915
Music: William H. Doane, 1832-1915
1. I am thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
and it told Thy love to me;
but I long to rise in the arms of faith
and be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
to the cross where Thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
to Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
by the power of grace divine;
let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
and my will be lost in Thine.
3. O the pure delight of a single hour
that before Thy throne I spend,
when I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
till I cross the narrow sea;
there are heights of joy that I may not reach
till I rest in peace with Thee.
Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be you dismayed: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Psalms 9:10 And they that know Your name will put their trust in You: for You, Lord, have not forsaken them that seek You.
Isaiah 43:18-19 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
