Poem: You Are There

Friends

In case you need a little encouragement today. Remember that our God is always there.

You Are There

“You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there”

(Psalm 139:5-8, NIV).

You are there,

You are there.

You are always there.

You tell me,

Listen!

My promise receive,

Never will I forsake you,

Never will I leave.

You are there,

In my going out,

Know my coming in,

Your Grace is sufficient,

You cover my sin.

You are there,

When I rise up,

When I lie down,

When I am lost,

You call me found.

You are there,

In the summer sun,

In the icy rain,

You bear my burdens,

You share my pain.

Shadows lurk and linger,

Darkness closes in,

My courage falters,

But fear can never win.

For You are there,

When storm clouds threaten,

When bitter winds blow,

My hand in Yours,

You never let go.

Again, You remind me,

Listen!

My promise receive,

Never will I forsake you,

Never will I leave.

Yes, You are there.

You are there, Lord.

You are always there.
