In Your Presence


A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

Psalm 63:1-8 KJV


This song is part of a worship compilation I wrote while working in a youth ministry. It is still sung today!

In Your Presence

O, Lord, I come to You in Prayer

On my knees, this hungry soul I bare

Take me as I am

Mold me to Your plan

I am nothing on my own

Lead me to Your throne

For my heart and my flesh cry out to Thee

In Your presence is where I long to be

Father, draw me to your side

Let me evermore abide

In Your presence is where I long to be
