Be Still and Know
When I wake in the morning
and I give my day to Him,
I'm secure with the knowledge that my future is my friend.
As I walk along Life's way, I often turn to Him and say,
Is there something more?
For just as I think I've
got it all, I stumble and fall
Over a treasure I've never known before.
So now that you have my heart and full attention
Would You care to mention something new?
Be still and know that I am God.
Thanksgiving at the Father's Knee
Thank You Lord Jesus
for loving me,
for the love that lured me
to the Father's knee.
Where the treasures of heaven
are poured over me
Where the fruits of Your spirit
are poured into me.
And thank You Lord for teaching me
the secret of loving unconditionally.
Thank You Lord for bringing
to the truth of my reality
Found only here at the throne . . . at the Father's knee.
When I took Your hand I didn't understand
what ecstacy awaited me.
When I took Your hand
I didn't know where we would go.
I only saw a chance to know the perfect love I'd longed for so.
I followed You and You led me to
a special place prepared by You
A place for me for eternity . . .
at our Father's knee.
By His Grace,
