Where You Abide
Lord, You convert us to Your Word,
not once, not twice, but every time your heard.
We attend Your church when its doors are open wide,
holding them open in our souls where You abide.
Conversion does not happen one day in a life,
but continues to change us through all strife,
shaping us without, forming us within,
helping us recognize the power of sin.
Through our conversion we seek You each day,
never really getting it right, we pray.
That seeking brings us close enough to Thee,
that You will then willingly find me.
Though I love You beyond earthly measure,
that You first loved me a greater treasure.
Never cease to seek those looking for Your truth divine,
help us to always search and continuously find.
Psalm 119:73 "Your hands made me and formed me;
give me understanding to learn your commands."
