~~ Lord Today I Need You ~~
Lord, today I need You as I have so many times before.
I wait for You to call on me, to hear Your knock upon my door.
When I awoke this morning my heart wasnít joyful or filled with pride.
I need You today to walk with me, closely by my side.
My mind is not filled with peace nor do I feel content.
What have I done to cause this feeling of lament?
Lord, please talk to me and explain why I feel this way.
I am always calling and I listen to what You have to say.
You say my heart harbours Ill feelings that I have to cleanse?
You say I have unpleasant thoughts and I must make amends?
But Lord I donít feel them, I cannot find them any place.
I searched all through my heart yet You say they show upon my face.
I ask You to help me Lord, to wash them all away.
I ask You to kneel with me as I humbly pray.
I know You are the only hope of salvation and You hear my prayer.
I can feel You Lord, in my heart I know You are there.
My darkness is lifting, my soul is being filled with You.
Once again Youíve picked me up, your love for me is true.
Thank You Lord for all Youíve done for me this day.
Your power has washed through me as I knelt to pray.
