I heard another say today, “So often I forget
Until I am in deepest pain, and then He meets me yet!”
All I could think was, “Please dear Lord,
O may it never be… that I forget about the One
Who gave His life for me.”
How could I wake each morn’ without the Breath that fills my lungs
The song that’s ringing in my ears and is as yet unsung?
How could I bear to take one step without the strength that lifts
My aching heart and weary soul… another day a gift.
My thoughts were ringing out this way, oh righteous so I was….
When it dawned on me that yesterday He and I met not once.
My day was on right off the bat, I barely stopped to converse
He beckoned me, but I ignored the God of the universe.
It never happens purposely, for all within me longs
To live forever at His side and safely in His arms
And yet some days there is no response
Some days my soul seems dead
To the Word that brought me such delight when just last time I read.
How is it that I oft’ am cold, when just the day before
The fire deep within me burned
And everything within me yearned
To be at Heavn’s door?
The fellowship I share with Him those times is oh so sweet
Moments resting in His arms and sitting at His feet.
He bathes me in His precious love, the world fades full away
And there is no-one else but Him and me and what we say.
Oh precious Lord, I long to live enraptured by Your grace
I want to spend each passing hour envisioning Your face
I know I have to live on earth and will distracted be
But just for now, will You please come
And sing for me the song unsung
And fade all others from my view
Until all of me
Is only You
