Text Box: The Closeness of You

I woke up in the mid of night,
The darkness sore there was no light
And in the darkness as I thought,
I felt the closeness of you

Rising early to plan for the day
Placing things in an orderly way
In planning I forgot to pray
Still I felt the closeness of you

I thought about the clear blue sky
Your greatness Lord and wondering way
A God like you would care for me
I felt the closeness of you.

In those days when so much was right
Accomplishments were at a height
As I rejoiced about myself
I felt the closeness of you.

Today beside myself I knelt
In prayer for change bitterly I wept
Alone there I called your name
And felt the closeness of you.

I glorify and praise your name
 and lift you up because you came
And pitched your tent beside my heart
And I felt the closeness of you.

Had it not been for on Calvary’s cross
with Your bloody death my soul you bought
I’d never know that comfort joy and bliss
Is to feel the closeness of you.
