I Asked

I asked the Lord to keep me, He said child I am near
I will never leave you, you have nothing to fear.

I asked the Lord for wisdom for surely I had none
He said, since you seek me, consider it as done.

I asked the Lord to love me, He said child don't you know,
It was I who loved you most, as I watched you grow

I ask the Lord for a companion for when I grow old
He said flesh will grow weary and lips will turn cold

I asked the Lord to save me, He said your burdens I do bare,
my kingdom is forever, for those who hold me up in prayer

I asked the Lord to quiet the storm that raged inside
He stood by the waters and spread his arms out wide

I asked the Lord for forgiveness upon my bent knee
He said from the wages of sin, it is I who set you free

I thanked the Lord for the healing that seeped from every pore
He said that's just a sample of what I have in store

The praise I reined upon Him for making me complete
He said the devil has no power, with me, he can't compete
