There All The Time

I lift my praises up to you my Father,
For your Holy Spirit has filled me with your songs..
In my pain you have sat close beside me
And comforted me with your words.
For you are my Saviour and my God.

Out of my lips have flowed verses learned long ago
Locked deep in my memory you have released them
In such times of their deepest need.
Your voice is ever with me when I cry out to you
For you are my Saviour and my God.

Your ear is bent toward me when I lie awake at night.
When I cry out to you in my deep despair
You brush the tears away from my face to re-affirm
That you understand and yes you do still care.
For you are my Forerunner and my God.

There was a time in pain I felt you were no longer there,.
That I had displeased you and you withdrew your care.
My prayers reached the ceiling and bounced right back
I longed for the close fellowship that we once had.
For you are my Guardian and my God.

It was then that in prayer I finally realized
That You had not removed your face from me,.
And I experienced a renewal of your bountiful grace.Humbly I fell reverently down upon my face,
For you are my Confessor and my God.

Your Spirit reached out to me and gave me a sign
I had felt that I could not go on in this abyss of pain.
You told me to be patient, I will serve you yet again
No longer to walk through this valley of pain
For your words are True and you are my God..

You ensured that I would not walk this path alone
You surrounded me with Prayer Warriors ever
Willing to reach out and stand in the gap for me.
For this I give you and them my endless praise.
For you are my Enabler and my God.

Father God help me in this schoolroom never to ask Why,
But rather to realize you have not finished with me yet.
For truly you are right here with me all of the time.
Ready to place your hand in mine when things are bad.
For you are my Physician and my God.
