lyrics

“Be Not Far From Me”
Words and music by Stephen McNeill


Oh Lord, in the morning you hear my voice, oh
Give ear to my grief and my groaning here, oh
Your abundant and steadfast love
Welcomes my soul to bow down
In the day of my troubles, grace abounds


Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
Because of my enemies
Make the crooked road before me straight
Be not far from me, oh my God
Be not silent to my complaint

I travel a wild and weary land, oh
Accusers and liars, they lie in wait for me
Why do wicked and hateful men
Prosper and rule over me?
How long will my oppressors boast and feast?

Chorus

Let all who take refuge in you rejoice
Let your people forever sing for joy
Cover us with your favor, Lord
Like a strong and shining shield

Oh Lord, in the morning you hear my voice, oh
Your Spirit preserves me though terror looms, oh
Your abundant and steadfast love
Keeps me when chaos surrounds
In the day of my trouble, grace abounds
