With the Lord beside Me

The very last of the sun before darkness
The very last of the sun before darkness


I know you’ll be there

Whenever I call

And I know that it’s you I can always rely on

Because I adore you oh, Lord


Lord I’m in awe

Of all the wonders about me

And when I see the beauty of the Heavens

My heart begins to sing


I was taught to pray

When I was just so little

And I memorized each Bible verse given

And soon realized how great you truly are


I know that as long as I

Walk by Your side

I’ll never want for anything

And I’ll be safe there in your shadow


Lord I have so much to be thankful for

You have spared me so much grief

And Lord thank you for taking my nearest and dearest

To be with you until we meet again


Every morning my soul

Thanks you and rejoices with the new day

And every night as day is done

I can rejoice in the beauty of the twilight


And say thank You Lord

As the days and the years roll on

My eyes fill with grateful tears

You’ve given me so much


Thank you for holding my hand Lord

The Bible is my top favorite book

The Psalms and the Song of Solomon my two favorites

But the best thing of all is that this book tells me what you have said Lord


But I know you don’t need me to sing praises

Because you love me just as I am

And that’s saying so very much

So let’s go on our way Lord through another day

To have faith just faith is a miracle in itself; irrespective what name is given to that faith. Bravo. :)

Love the song, it was one of my mother's favorites, I can still hear her sing it in my mind.

Your poem was a beautiful start to my day, as I sat at the computer after an early walk. I praised our Lord for other believers who share their faith, like you, because they encourage others. It is true that God doesn't need our praise, however, we need to praise our God, it is the song of grateful beings who adore their Creator!!

God bless!

You have just shed light on my emotions with all of my losses. I love the Lord with all of my heart, Gypsy. Amen for writing this and opening my eyes to something new. God shined a light on these words and I will hold your hub near an dear to my heart.

What I find interesting is when there is a hub so beautiful people run from it like the plague. When it is negative people tend to draw to it. I pray that many will read these inspiring words and take something from it, like I did. (((Hugs)) Shared. :)

So glad that you liked this and the song gottabegod. Your mom sounds like I am I always find lots of wonderful songs about God which I really like. Lots all around this summer to inspire. A lot of my thanks for my faith go to the pastor and the teachers who instilled it in me at the Lutheran Elementary School I went to. We had Bible lessons and passages to remember and church every Wednesday. I was a ritual I really enjoyed. God bless.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comment and thanks for the share AEvans. The Lord and I have been friends for a long time. My faith was instilled strongly in me in the three years I attended Lutheran Elementary School. Bible lessons, passages to remember and church on Wednesday mornings rain or shine the class went to church. And my young heart this was 6, 7 and 8th grades embraced it all with enthusiasm. Hugs to you and God bless.
