263 All the Way in Your Company
1 I drifted and wandered in the world, deep in my heart I felt at sea. Your warm words awoke me, and I saw the true light. Your words brighten my heart, they are all the truth and so real. Reflecting upon my actions, I realized that they revealed my corrupt disposition. I fell down, overcome with remorse, willing to repent and make myself anew. Your judgment reveals my corruption is so deep, You have led me every step of the way. When I’m distant, You call me, and lead me out of temptation. When I rebel, You hide Yourself, and I am plunged into sorrow and pain. When my heart turns back towards You, You smile and hold me close. When Satan deceives and harms me, You quickly rescue me and heal my wounds. When I fall into the devil’s prison, You are with me and I don’t feel alone. Then I know the dawn will appear, the sky will be blue as before!
2 Your words and work guide me, Your love draws me to follow You. I relish Your words every day, You are my constant companion. When I am negative and weak, Your words are my sustenance and my strength. When I suffer setbacks and failures, Your words are the hand helping me up. When I am besieged by Satan, Your words give me courage and wisdom. When I encounter trials and refinement, Your words guide me to stand witness. Your words accompany and guide me, my heart is warm and at ease. Your love is so real, my heart is full of gratitude. I sing Your praises aloud, You have saved me from Satan’s harms. I sing out to You, You have purified and saved me. Without Your judgment, I wouldn’t be here now. Oh, practical God in the flesh, You have saved mankind. Almighty God, we will always love You, You are so worthy of man’s love!
