Hold Me Close

Hold Me Close

In happy times I thank You,
And feel strength beyond my own.
And when my heart is breaking,
I know I’m not alone.

In discouragement as I struggle,
And it settles like a cloud,
Then I come in prayer before You,
In Your presence meekly bow.

For our feelings are such wispy things,
And in an instant change.
They depend upon the acts of men,
And often leave us drained.

Take away my sinful nature,
Renew my faith, through strength in You,
As I lay down my life daily,
In Your presence I’m renewed.

So when my heart soars within me,
Or when it feels so low,
I’m so thankful You are here Lord
Just this petition….hold me close.

With Love to Jesus
MJ Johnson
