The words of my heart this morning

These are the words, that echo my heart, and my cry to Jesus today.

Could I: Kim Mcmechan

Could I just sit here a whileknow that there's nothing that I need to say
safe in the knowledge that you know my ways
love me, completely no need to hide a thing
could I just stay here a while letting you melt away all of my fears
I feel your comfort when you are so near
I hide myself in the shelter you made for me
could I just kneel here a while
doing what I was created to do bowing in reverence
I long to adore you
willingly giving all that I can surrender
could I just rest here a while
letting you whisper my burdens away
and all of my journeys there is no other place
where I find refuge strength for my weary heart
could I just sit here a while
know that there's nothing that I need to say
safe in the knowledge that you know my ways
love me completely no need to hide a thing

Oh Great God: Nichole Nordeman
Oh great God be small enough to hear me now
there were times when I was crying from the dark of Daniel's den
and I have asked you once or twice if you would part the sea again
but tonight I do not need a fiery pillar in the sky
Just want to know that you're gonna hold me if I start to cry
oh great god be small enough to hear me now
Oh great God be close enough to feel you now
There have been moments when I could not face Goliath on my own
and how could I forget we've marched around our share of Jerichos
but I will not be setting out a fleece for you tonight
just want to know that everything will be alright
oh great God be close enough to feel you now
All praise and all the honor to the God of ancient mysteries
whose every sign and wonder turned the pages of our history
but tonight my heart is heavy and I cannot keep from whispering this prayer
Are you there?
And I know you could leave the writing on the wall thats just for me
or send wisdom while I'm sleeping like in Soloman's sweet dreams
I don't need the strength of Samson
or a chariot in the end just want to know that you know how many hairs are on my head
oh great God be small enough to hear me now.
