My Prayer

Rescue me from trouble,
When my life is drowned in fear
May Your hand be with me always,
Reminding me You’re here

I ask God, please do humble me,
In all the things I do
For nothing ever matters,
Unless it’s done by You

I need to feel Your comfort,
When my day has just been bad
When all the world forsakes me,
And I feel alone and sad

I love when I can raise my voice,
To your wondrous name in praise
When joy is flowing in my heart,
I thank You for such days

May You live within me always,
Down from Heaven Your love send
So now, my prayer I lift to You,
Perfect Father, my dear Friend.
