Laura Story - Nearness Lyrics




Breath of God, steady my soul
In thee hours when I feel alone
I will lift weary eyes to you, oh Lord

When I can't find answers I seek
When my faith feels weathered and weak
I will call with feeble voice to you, oh Lord

Cause it's what I know of You that soothes me
Your word that's holding true that moves me

To let go
Trusting all I ever need to know
Is Your nearness
My hope
What holds me in the valley
Is the promise of Your nearness

When my plans
Are leveled to dust
When I'm tempted by lesser loves
I will cling with all my strength to you, oh Lord

Cause it's what I know of You that soothes me
Your word that's holding true that moves me

To let go
Trusting all I ever need to know
Is Your nearness
And my hope
What holds me in the valley
Is the promise of Your nearness

It's not the answers that You give
That makes my heart be still
It's not the mountains that You move
It's simply resting Lord in You

I can let go
Cause all I ever need to know
Is Your nearness
And my hope
What holds me in the valley
Is the promise of Your nearness

You're all I ever needed
You're all I ever needed
All I ever needed
Is Your nearness
Breathe of God
Steady my soul
In the hour when I feel alone
I will lift weary eyes to You, oh Lord

    This song is truth. Sometimes we just need to trust. God is God and he knows what is best.

    This is so beautiful! I live with chronic illness, and have a ministry online for other believers struggling with illness, disability and depression. This song tells me we all learn His sweet nearness in the wilderness times! Thank you!
