Lord, Stay Close to Me

Everyone has been through some sort of trial in their life. Rather big or small, God will help you through it. When I first heard this song many years ago it was very special to me. Now when I listen to it I remember how God was faithful in my darkest hours. The second verse is my favorite. It’s a personal song to me. So if you’re going through a tough time just ask the Lord to stay close to you as you journey through the darkness of this great unknown.

Stay Close to Me
By Patti Hawkins, Ann Downing, and Laurie Winton

Verse 1
Lord, I knew a time like this would surely come my way

When in disbelief, I’d watch my whole life change

I thought I’d have the words to tell You how I feel

But the only thing my heart is telling me to say is

Lord stay close to me, as I journey through the darkness of this great unknown

Lord, stay close to me, though I’ve place my faith in You, I feel so all alone

My heart trembles like a child as I walk each scary mile

And the only prayer my lips can find to speak is Lord, stay close to me

Verse 2
I guess that I could ask You for some miracle

To even take away this trial that I face

But Lord, I know that You alone know what I need

So would You hold me tight as I journey through this place

Oh Lord, when I’m so scared, please be there, Lord

So I can rest in the promise, the promise that You care

Lord I know that I can make it through if all I have is You
