INTO YOUR PRESENCE

Into Your Presence

(A Hymn for the Church)

by Lisa Huddleston

Hear us, Lord, as we come today

to the foot of Your cross to pray

May our thoughts all be right and true

May our hearts always cling to You

May all our tongues with your truth imbue

Words that guide us all to do

Everything that You made us to

As we come into Your presence

 

Cleanse us, Lord, as we come today

to the foot of Your cross to pray

Let us see with our eyes so clear

All the sins that we hold so dear

Show us all of our thoughts and fears

Give us hearts to confess in tears

Wash us clean as You draw us near

As we come into Your presence

 

Teach us, Lord, as we come today

to the foot of Your cross to pray

May our ears hear Your still, small voice

Free our wills from a world of choice

To left or right, as we long to turn

“This is the way”—may our spirits learn

How to walk and our wills to burn

As we come into Your presence

 

Send us, Lord, as we leave today

from the foot of Your cross we pray

May our arms carry bags of seed

To every person who has a need

Grant us wisdom to gently weed

With hearts that love both in truth and deed

Each soul that seeks You, You will lead

As You draw them to Your presence
