Stay Close By

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

Stay close by me Lord

I’m a stranger in this land.

How can I believe

When my heart can’t understand.


Please forgive me Lord

When I doubt how you feel for me,

Love has never been easy

For me to trust easily.


All of my life Lord

Is compromise and condition,

I know I need to learn

The truth of this vision


I’m asking you to teach me Lord

To accept Your truth in my heart,

For all my doubts and unbelief

Are keeping You and I apart


Release me Lord

From the fears I hold within,

Tear down the strongholds

Allow me – to let you in.
