“Yet you are near, LORD, and all your commands are true.” (Psalm 119:151)


Sweet child of mine,
If you only knew
Always how close
I am to you,

How near I am
Throughout the day,
How I am next to you
Paving the way,

How I am smiling
To hold your hand,
How I unfold for you
All I have planned…

Yes, if you knew
How close I am always,
Endless would be
Your joy, your praise,

Perfect your peace,
Rich your love,
Fastened your eyes
On heaven above.

So I ask you now
My closeness to feel,
How strong it is,
How divine and real,
How sweet it is
To hold my hand,
How happy to embrace,
All I have planned,

How blissful it is
To walk this pathway,
How blessed it is
To hear all I say…
Yes, sweet child,
Know this to be true:
Each and every moment
I am close to you!
