MY SAVIOR NEAR….by Carl Gooch
In the morning’s cool fall air,
I sit peacefully without care…
A book of love open in my hand
To seek His word and my command.
What doth day hold…how will I fare…
It doesn’t matter when He is there,
Blessings, promises before me lay:
The Lord my God walks with me today!
Noon sun warms my hair,
Rejoice my heart, for His care…
My heart o’er flows in joyous praise
For the Lord watching over me all my days.
When toil becomes too much to bear,
Take it all to the cross, leaving it there…
He gives strength that we can stand
Guided and protected by his hand!
The evening sun sets as I kneel in prayer,
Thanking the Lord that He’s always there…
When my body is weary from running its race
Calm and peace–His rest sets in place.
I have no worries
And have no fear…
I know my Savior
And He is near!
