God Come Near

God come near

come near to the lonely heart

near to the wandering child

to the soul seeking you


God come near

near to the troubled brow

to the sorrowful and hurt

near to the breaking spirit


Powerful Savior draw us near

as we travel this road

you’ve laid before us

that leads into your presence


Rescuer draw near to us

heal our hearts and our minds

remind us of your love and peace

for you are here to draw us near


When we cry out, as you

promised, God come near


*a short poem/prayer inspired by a sermon from my college church’s summer series. The picture is one of mine from a few years ago at the summer camp where I worked.
