NEVER FAR AWAY

He is not far away

He is not just ‘out there’

Way beyond the rippling clouds

And distant from our stirring spheres

He is not far away

Detached, issuing curt commands

He is not far away

Like a tale from distant lands.

 

God is near to us, a present helper He is.

He sees us in our troubles

And to them He speaks “peace be still”

So when it seems so hard to ‘reach out to Him’

You can always turn

For like a long ignored but faithful friend

He is ever abiding, much like the beautiful sun

So open up your heart and quit the race

Why run, run away from His sweet embrace

When He brings love, power and yes,

An insane dose of unspeakable grace

God is not far away

He is not just ‘out there’

Oh how I wish you knew this

That He is, and has always been

Right here.

Live by Design.
