Draw Me Close

"Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world." - James 4:8

Michael W. Smith is one of my favorite Christian song writers. His song "Draw Me Close" has blessed me throughout my ministry. The song goes like this:

Draw me close to you
Never let me go
I lay it all down again
To hear you say that I'm your friend
You are my desire
No one else will do
Cause nothing else can take your place
To feel the warmth of your embrace
Help me find the way
Bring me back to you

You're all I want
You're all I've ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know you are near.

"In this moment draw me to yourself, Lord, and make me aware not so much of what I've given as of all I have received and so have yet to share. Send me forth in power and gladness and with great courage to live out in the world what I pray and profess that, in sharing, I may do justice, make peace, grow in love, enjoy myself, other people, and your world now, and you forever." Amen. -- Ted Loder, Guerrillas of Grace
