~~ YOU WERE THERE ~~
I asked You to speak to me but I didn't hear You say a thing,
All I heard was a pretty bird as it began to sing.
I asked you to touch me but Your hand I did not feel
All I felt was the grass...so soft beneath my heel.
I asked You to show Yourself as I began to cry
All I saw were awesome colors, on a lovely butterfly.
I asked You to hold me but Your arms I didn't find
All I found was gentle peace enveloping my mind.
I asked You to cool my brow for You to be my friend
All I saw was dancing leaves, blown gently by the wind.
I asked You to hear my prayers that I send to You each day
Then suddenly I realized...You had not gone away!
Everything I asked for You had given me!
Even the day with sky so blue and I just didn't see!
The song, the grass, the butterfly - all of that was You!
The peace, the wind, the grand new day, the sky of azure blue!
How could I have thought I wasn't heard, You were everywhere!
How could I have thought that my Lord, for me had ceased to care?
How blind I was, to not have known that You were by my side
How could I have not seen, and set aside my doubting pride?
