~ I Am Here ~
When times are hard and
Days seem weary, I am here.
I am ever waiting, when you
Bow your head in prayer.
I told you, when you are
Tired or scared, to cry.
I am here my son, my daughter.
It is I who stands by.
I was here when you were born;
Your family loved you so.
It is I who will be here when you die.
To Heaven I would have you go.
Look up to the sky; I am
Farther away, but in your heart.
Although, sometimes, you leave me
Out a bit, I shall not part.
I am here when you fall.
I lift you up and take you back, again.
I hold you closely to my heart
And wash you clean from sin.
Temptation comes to you. I know,
At times, you cannot, refrain.
When you fall, again, your life
Feels cold as winter rain.
I am here when you or a loved one
Is ill; when a babe is born.
I will be here when you leave this world;
I will help the babe to mourn.
I am here, with you, when the rains fall
Or snow is upon the ground.
When you go through trials and
Tribulations, I can be found.
