Keep Me Near

20130115blog1

“For outside of You I’m lost. For Your presence is my joy.
Draw me in the tide of Your will, Break my selfish nature and pride,
Lead me as I yield myself to You. Mould a life of loyalty to You.
Keep me near Your heart.

“Rescue me in weakness of mind,
When distraction conquers me.
Keep me in Your shadow, O Lord,
Give me grace to follow where You lead.

“Keep me near Your heart,
Keep me near Your heart.

“For You are everything that is beautiful,
Keep me near Your heart, Keep me near Your heart,
And You are all that I long to see in me.
You are everything that is beautiful;
Breathe Your desires in me.

“Form in us a heart of divine beauty,

“For Your presence is my joy.
Break my selfish nature and pride,
Mould a life of loyalty to You.
Keep me near Your heart.”
