Lord, I Need You...

Sometimes when life seems gentle and blessings flood my way,
I turn my gaze away from You and soon forget to pray.
But when the sky grows darker and courage turns to fear,
My anxious voice cries upward with words you long to hear.
Lord, I need You when the sea of life is calm.
O Lord, I need You when the wind is blowing strong.
Whether trials come or cease, keep me always on my knees.
Lord, I need You. Lord I need You.
Lord, help me to remember I'm weak but You are strong.
I cannot sing apart from You, for Lord You are my song.
Although I'm prone to wander and boast in all I do;
Lord keep my eyes turned upward so I depend on You.
Lord, I need You when the sea of life is calm.
O Lord, I need You when the wind is blowing strong.
Whether trials come or cease, keep me always on my knees.
Lord, I need You. Lord I need You.

Song by Ron Hamilton (sorry I couldn't find the recording to share.)

I have never heard this song before, but what wonderful lyrics...we always need need Him...when we drift apart from Him...we end up like the poor little butterfly in that last picture...

I want to stay near to Him...need to stay near to Him....

Great post, Bobbi!

One of my favorite songs.

Ron Hamilton just had cancer surgery again recently, but they think it was contained and he is cancer free again.

Great song.

I think I have those purple flowers in my front bed. They just aren't that big since we had them put in last year.
