LORD HERE I AM BEFORE YOU

by SANDRA PADMORE
(Brooklyn, New York, USA)

Lord, here I am before You, I don’t know what to say
I have given up; I can no longer do it my way
This life that I’m living is a life without any hope
I’m so weak, I’m lost, and I can no longer cope
So here I am Lord Jesus, I’m calling out Your name
I have no one else to turn to; and so that’s why I came

Have mercy on me Jesus: look beyond my foolish ways
I’ve neglected to trust You and I have wasted my days
Fill me with your presence, wrap me in your tender care
Lift my eyes toward heaven to a love beyond compare
I hope it is not too late now Lord, Please don’t let it be
I have no one else to turn to and I need You to comfort me

I know that You do love me; I know that without a doubt
You’ve kept watch over me knowing what I was all about
Who else would have protected me and saved me from myself
Only You my heavenly Father, Only You could break the spell
I turned my back on You dear Lord and what I’ve done was wrong
Please don’t turn Your back on me; Please help me to get strong

Why has it take me this long? I know You might be pondering
But that same question dear Lord, I too have been pondering
My wayward ways were enticing; my life filled with foolish pride
But darkness has overcome me and I no longer want to hide
I know that You will forgive me regardless of the seeds I’ve sown
So this is why I’m here Lord; I want You to claim me as Your own

Lord, her I am before You; my life is full of shame
I ‘m hurting and I have no one but myself to blame
I took it upon myself dear Jesus to live life recklessly
Never ever considering that life would beat me so mercilessly
So here I am before You lord, I’m ashamed and so confused
The gift of life You’ve been offering me I can no longer refuse

Here I am before You lord; life has forced me to my knees
I am begging, prayerfully asking; that You grant my utmost needs
I need Your love and Your mercy; Your strength so that I can stand
I need Your forgiveness; Oh! Lord touch me with Your healing hand
I need Your help and guidance, A stronger will so not to stray
Oh! Remind me Heavenly Father; to daily fall on my knees and pray
