Oh Lord I come with heart here open,
For in my hour of darkness I'm in need.
Seeking the joy of love unspoken
Oh Lord, be Thou near to me.

And the holy voices sing "Hallelu!"
Ever will Thy reign be.
As I wander through this life,
Oh Lord, be Thou near to me.

Though In this burden of my making
Yet in the shadows still a light I see
Maker whose love is not forsaking
Oh Lord, be thou near to me

And the holy voices sing "Hallelu!"
Ever will Thy reign be.
As I wander through this life,
Oh Lord, be Thou near to me.

And the holy voices sing "Hallelu!"
Ever will Thy reign be.
As I wander through this life,
Oh Lord, be Thou near to me.

Oh Lord
Be thou near
To me.
