309 I Wish I Was With God Every Day
1 On the day we parted with God, He had a smile on His face. He turned and waved to us, we watched Him go in tearful silence. Because the churches needed Him, I could not urge Him to stay. I watched His back as He walked away into the distance, I kept His exhortations in my heart.
2 Whenever I am weak, I think of the price God has paid. The love of God that cares for man and His powerful words bestir and warm my heart, I feel so indebted to God. I hate myself for caring too much about my flesh, and I feel unworthy to live before Him.
3 Whenever I think of God’s love, my heart is doubly encouraged. I want to do my duty to repay God’s love, and I feel that my stature is so small. When will I grow into a person who can bear witness to God and serve Him? I am resolved to practice God’s word so that my life grows quickly.
4 How I want to be by God’s side, and confide to Him so many confidences. Remembering the scene when we were together, my heart is filled with sweet bliss. God lives humbly amongst man, providing us with truth and life. With our hearts we look up to Him, and yearn to be with Him every day.
