Night to Morning (LORD, All I Need Is You!)
Setting everything aside – letting go of fear and pride, ignoring the pestering thoughts in – (and out) - 'side – don't know what else to do, my LORD, I run to YOU!
Nightmares eclipsing sun and song, images of world's gone wrong, and murderous, hating, killing throngs – threatening to subdue – Avenu, I need You!
Fighting fear - of powers great & small - I seek the Power above all! And on Your Grace, I'll gladly fall! - remembering all You Do – Malkenu, I need You!
I reach up and take Your hand, You pull me up above the land, and repeat Your Loving, Firm, Command – I know now what to do, LORD, I AM Trusting You!
And then the pulsing slows its beat, in Your presence I find Peace, so sweet, then I no longer fear defeat – Yes, it's very True! And LORD, I'm thanking YOU!
Your Presence calms the greatest storms, I knew soon after I was born – because HE took that crown of Thorns – no matter what I do, LORD, I can still find YOU!
So thank You God for being here, for always being very near, so that I needn't EVER fear– even when I can't get through, LORD, all I need is YOU!
Father, Spirit, Anointed Son – Three Almighty LOVES in ONE, and I'll be like YOU before You're Done – I'm so glad that it's True! LORD, that all I need is YOU!
There is no power which can quell Your mighty Self - which before I fell, not even all the force of Hell, can vanquish what is True. Lord, all there IS is You!
I face now, what may lie ahead, without the characteristic dread, of all things living and some things dead – because what can they do? IF all I need is YOU?!
A song of praise flows from my heart, replacing fear, which MUST depart, as
Your strength so freely You will impart – to those who will stay true, to seek and worship YOU!
The sun has risen in the sky, my work calls out, and so must I, arise, and bid this place good-bye – but in all I say or do – LORD, I can stay with You!
So I rise in power from this place, where I had fallen on my face, thankful for YOUR Amazing Grace! So thankful, Your mercies are new, and All I need is You!
With Love, Sandra
