Here to Hear

Della Smith

I knew you before you were born
I’ve never left your side
Even though you didn’t know me
I was always along for the ride

I’m nearer now than before
I’m as close as your heartbeat
I know every thought,
I know every fear
I feel every prayer that you breathe

What concerns you, concerns me
Not a single care is too small
I care about every detail
I care about YOU most of all

I’m not a God who’s far away
I’m not too busy to bother
For you are my child, and I love you
I am pleased to be your Father

Draw near to me, don’t be afraid
I’m waiting for your whisper
Just speak the name of Jesus
And see how quickly I answer

You don’t have to work for my approval
There’s nothing you can do to earn it
Just believe and receive that I love you
And don’t reject me or spurn it

Ask me and you’ll be forgiven
Ask me and you’ll feel my love
Ask and I’ll fill you with my Spirit
And comfort you with peace from above

(c) 2014 Della Smith

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39
