This heart and mind belongs to you
from the day I was born.
nearly death consume me, before
given another life threescore.
asking, why you never take me
and let me suffer life’s cruelty.
spirit sings in worshipping your holy name
before dusk, my spirit rises before the sun
no greater joy have found in your presence
my heart was yours a promise to love you more
You hold the key to my heart
your unconditional love keeps my hopes up
through dreams and vision, you spoke to me
admonishing my ways before things takes place
you already open the path for me.
you give me strength to go on each day
with every strife you put a smile to my heart
when painful lashes strikes my back
hope is ever-present,
the courage to face every morning
to face a new day with a smile.
knowing your hands is always there to lead me
your presence is everywhere to protect and
keeps me safe every minute.
countless times I leave at your side,
but you always keep the door open
for my return.
my mother may forget me,
but your loving arms are always there to
. You’re my shepherd,
I’m a lost lamb, but you found me
Lord, I was lost but now I’m found.
Smile, a new day will arise
without the trappings of life
celestial songs lifting spirits to light
The echoes of eternal life.
He is our refuge in times of trouble
the healer of the broken,
the restorer of hope and peace,
his divine presence is joy and happiness.
