"…there is a friend
who sticks closer than a brother."
Sometimes I go to God's house, sometimes He visits mine;
He often comes to work with me and helps me pass the time.
He's with me in the kitchen when I cook and as I scrub;
I meditate upon Him while lolling in the tub.
He keeps me company driving and when I take a walk;
God and I stroll quietly and other times, we talk.
God's there when I am shopping and watering my flowers;
He inspires my writing, in computer weary hours.
He's in me as I minister and hears me as I pray,
lifts me up when I am downcast and helps me through the day.
He sups with me at table and He joins me in my rest.
Oh, when we are communing, they're the times I like the best.
God loves it when I worship Him and glorify His Name;
He shines His face upon me and ignites me with His flame!
I read to know God better, for He knows all about me;
fills sleepy thoughts at bedtime with His sweet tranquility.
How blessed I am to know Him! Love overflows my heart!
I count upon His faithfulness and know we'll never part.
My heart is filled with gladness every moment that I spend
with the Creator of the Universe, Holy God, my Friend.
