A SIMPLE PRAYER
Lord, shine on me
In me and through me,
Let today be your day of salvation
Let now be your time of favor.
Much love always to give
So many to give it to
Those at every hand;
A remembered song is heard moving gently in the background
Tender, kind words and melody by Phill McHugh-
“People need the Lord…
Why can’t they realize …that right before their eyes..
People need the Lord.”
Multitudes trying to fight a war that’s already been lost,
While an even greater war was already won.
I walk before you, my Lord
In the land of the living
As King David wrote, “I lift up the cup of salvation
And call upon the Name of the Lord.”
What do we hold in this life
But fleeting memories;
My hand reaches out,
My heart to take hold of you!
Be my fortress, oh Messiah
Be my high tower, oh Yeshua
A temple refuge from my adversary, relentless enemy,
Place of shelter in your Name,
Place of eternal Sabbath rest
Secure in this very place of humility
Safe at this very time of vulnerability.
Gather the little children to your side
For even the ground cries out for pure water,
Another woman at the well, her village full of human needs;
Your warm embrace always comforts my soul
On another cold night and dry Earth day.
