A song of my heart

     You hem me in- behind and before; You have laid Your hand upon me.  Such knowledge is too wonderful to me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from Your Spirit?  Where can I flee from Your presence?  If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.- Psalm 139:5-10

Father, Your love overwhelms me
My heart feels like it will burst
I know I don't deserve it
But You loved me from the first

I can't keep it inside me
I want everyone to know
What it's like to walk beside You
To follow where You go

You fill me and lead me with Your Spirit
To a place of peace by Your side
Healing my hidden wounds and pain
That in shame I've kept inside

To think that a broken girl
Can be a daughter of the King
It fills me with wonder and awe
Being Your child changes everything...

Before, I was was dying of a thirst
That never seemed to be quenched
But You poured out Your living water on me
Now I dance with joy and my soul is drenched

Help me share You with those still lost out there
Wandering in that dry and weary land
So they may receive Your living water too
Please give them wisdom to understand

Give me the words to say to this hurting world
Because it's You that sets us free
It's You that removes our wretched, heavy chains
And opens our eyes to see

Your grace and mercy are for all of us
There isn't anything you won't forgive
When we invite You into our hearts and confess
It's in you that we can truly live

Father, You are glorious beyond compare
My unshackled feet dance for joy, light at last
I'm amazed that You love us just as we are
Nailed at the cross of calvary is our sinful past

Your presence overcomes me with Your glory
I can't help but lift my voice in praise to You
From the depth of my soul I cry out my passion
Because You are awesome, faithful, and true

How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God!  How vast is the sum of them!  Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.- Psalm 139:17-18

Father, walk with us this day.  Guide our steps and fill our hearts to overflowing with Your love that we may share with others the joy we have in You.
In Jesus' name, amen.
