The Presence of God

Sarah Elizabeth Itterman
Oh to have the presence of God in my life
Holy Spirit take control over my inmost being
Father, You who are the God all-seeing
Here is my heart; I gladly surrender everything
As the peace within has become my greatest blessing
Oh to know the presence of God in my life
Lord let me continually feel Your hand here
Remind me everyday how you always are so near
With You I can boldly in faith persevere
For my God is with me-whom shall I fear?
Oh to live out the presence of God in my life
May I be a bright light in the darkness
Let those who cross my path see You in my weakness
That they might come to know the power of Your greatness
In order to discover that in You is life’s highest fullness
Oh to will the presence of God in my life
How often I struggle to be in tune with His call
Worldly pleasures all forsaken as to my knees I fall
Praying that to Him only I will yield and give my all
Grant me the heart to cling to only that which is eternal
Oh to be in the very presence of God!
Finally to see His beloved face
To understand fully His love and His grace
I have fought the good fight and run the race
Forevermore I shall sing for His honor and praise
