Your Spirit

I love You, Lord, and praise Your name.
With You in my life, Iím not the same.
You give me hope when there is none.
Your spiritís like the first ray of sun.

When I am sad, You give me cheer.
When Iím afraid, You remove my fear.
When I am weak, You make me strong.
Your spiritís like a birdís sweet song.

When I need to grieve, You comfort me.
When I am wrong, You help me see.
You show me where I went astray.
Your spiritís here to lead my way.

When other people put me down,
You reach out and erase my frown.
You shower me with Your sweet love.
Your spiritís like a snow white dove.

When lifeís daily trials I face,
You walk beside me pace by pace.
I know I can depend on You.
Your spiritís like the morning dew.

When I try to share your grace,
Give me the words and your embrace.
Convict the one Iím talking to,
Your spiritís here to see me through.

As time goes by and I get old,
You keep me warm when I am cold.
When my bodyís racked with pain,
Your spiritís like a gentle rain.

When my life on earth is done,
and the prize Iíve finally won.
When on Your face, I finally gaze,
Iíll kneel to You and give You praise.
