When Your Near

Your love sustains me Lord,

Whatever I go through,

I know your there because of the way things go.

My heart aches for you at times so much

All I need today Lord, is your touch.

When you speak I yearn to hear you

When your near I love your Words

I love it when you sing over me

I may not hear but your always near.

Lord, I know your coming is close

I feel it in my heart

I want to bring you Glory

I don't want you to never depart.

Your Word says you won't leave

So I'm standing on your Truth.

I know you will revive me from day to day

Your love comes in the morning

No matter what life holds

Keep me close O Lord of hope

Never ever leave me so far behind

Because you are what I need to survive.
