Today is like every day, I need you Lord, I am desperate for You

Harsh events, life prints, leave me struggling, struggling to grow

Willingly I bend my knee to worship You, my heart beats with anticipation of your voice


Used and worn, life is overwhelming me, I am desperate for You

Wash sin out of my life, cleansing me from the dust and strife of living a Holy Life

Overcome my wayward ways, I’m so selfish too often, Lord speak and I will listen


Heated heart striving to be near You, Lord I am desperate for You

Impossible dreams wafting through my soul, All of life grabbing hold, I’m here Lord

I am seeking to be useful to You Lord, to those with me, to those I love


Again it seems life and everything is stacked against me, I am desperate for You

Many thoughts propel me, hear my cry, the things that mitigate success, rescue me Father

Faces in the crowd condemn me, those with me lift me up, the Godly seek me out


My expectation of a partner is nil, you Lord only you, I am desperate for You

Training me so young, the illusion that I am free, I am chained to You Lord, You Lord

Growth comes slowly, then quickly, I’ve so much to learn, Help me be Yours


So now a new day begins, the long watch of the night, I am desperate for You

Expectations are running high, is that me, I’m scared, it’s so new, fearsome

Then in a clear small voice you speak, I AM with you, do not be afraid


Yes, Lord I hear you speak, my heart jumps, my soul rejoices, I am desperate for You

Knowing You are here as I struggle, suffer and recover, life has real meaning in You

Receive my many praises Lord, You are great and mighty and I love You, You Lord, I love You


Once again a new day dawns, time flies, it causes me to be anxious, I am desperate for You

Time is renewed in You, eternity beckons day by day, You Lord are my refuge, my strength, my joy

To be with you Lord is to have peace, to know I’m on the right track, praise God from whom all blessings flow


This is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice therein, I am desperate for you

I live one day at a time, His presence gladly accepted, gratefully and joyously received

You Lord are my life my all, You Lord are all I need, Thank you Lord, Thank you
