Keep My Eyes on Your Face

You bless and restore me;
You love and adore me;
You go behind and before me…
Your glory has no bounds.
You guide and protect me;
You never reject me;
You’re there to collect me
When I fall to the ground.
You give wisdom and strength;
You go to great lengths
To make some sort of sense
Out of my poor, frazzled mind.
You are holy and just;
You do what You must
To teach me how to trust
That when I seek I will find.
You know what is best;
I will turn from the rest
As You draw me close to Your chest
And whisper words of grace.
You hear every prayer;
You show me You’re there
And that I need not despair…
Just keep my eyes on Your face.

Within Your Love


Deep within Your love
Is where I want to be…
From this very moment
Throughout all eternity.
Pursue me with Your kindness,
Envelop me in Your care;
Cover me with Your grace,
I long to be held there.
There’s no person in the world
Your love does not embrace;
From this earth, to the stars,
And through all of time and space.
You desire our affection
Even though You are Lord of all;
You see every time we’re hurting,
And You hear us when we call.
It’s too much for me to imagine –
Far greater than I can comprehend,
That the God of all creation
Desires to be my friend!
But I hold on to Your promise;
I know Your Word is true.
Father, I am so grateful:
Because You love me, I can love You.
