Dear Lord, Hold Me Close!

Dear Lord, please hold me close!
May it be my desire to
love you the most!

Dear Lord, may it be my
 passion and desire,,,
To daily lift your name up higher!

Dear Lord, please may it always be so...
That I will share your love wherever I go!

Dear Lord, please make it so evident...
The time of your coming
 is so imminent!

Dear Lord, much thanks
and praise is given!
You've taken away my sin!
 I am forgiven!

Dear Lord, without you, all is hopeless!
My life would be nothing
 but emptiness!

Dear Lord, I offer my life and freely give it!
I ask for the filling of
your Holy Spirit!

My Lord I want to give praise

 and adore you!
I humbly come and kneel
before you!

My Lord and my God...
You rule over everything!
You're my savior and friend…

And my king!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
