IN MY NEEDS
In my simple needs
As a man in this nation America,
A son, a brother, a nephew, a husband and father
A willing friend to others,
The soul does hunger
The spirit often thirsts
In my honest needs
My prayers rise up to Heaven
I know, in a blend of finest incense,
And I bow transparent before my Lord
As humility surrenders all, I bow down.
Then deepest yearning swells within
Longings once forgotten return
The mind begins to dart about anxiously
Until that gentle touch reaches out
And a calm is restored
Tender, kind words are spoken
Comfort and reassurance strengthens
And I know throughout my being
Once more I am refreshed and reminded,
That I fully know, in His greatness
My God will supply,
By my Savior’s hand and through my Savior’s love
In His greatness, My God will supply all of our needs.
Insatiable, selfish world
Never ever satisfied
Never enough in stomach and in hand
Such rebellious appetites
Insatiable and reckless world
Consumes and them consumes even more
Empty lives, empty hearts as human shells
Scattered all about the face of the Earth;
I can find no trust in earthly riches
I can find no rest in material worldly wealth.
This insatiable world always feeds only itself
Then turns again on itself in violent War!
But my God of Peace
My Holy God of Love
Supplies all of my needs
More than satisfies
Now and into eternity by our true Savior
From day to day through our ever present Messiah
He supplies all of our needs!
Daily prayers of many rise up once more into the finest incense
An aroma gathers about His Throne
Comfort in abundance draws us near in tenderness
More prayers mixed with praise rise up
Worship in gladness, in everlasting confidence,
And my compassionate God always draws closer to me, to us all.
I ask and He hears and I trust
New songs of praise and thanksgiving follow
Yes, I ask and seek and find
Then His greatness draws so very near
Closer to His side
Where He will always supply all of our needs!
