Find your place here in the presence

of He who knows and sees all things.

He knows your sorrow. He knows your name.

Find your place here in the presence

of He who has always been and who shall always be.

He knows your burdens. He sees your pain and shame.

Find your place here in the presence

of He who created this world and every living thing.

He sees your struggles. He knows you long for peace.

Find your place here in the presence

of He who sent His only Son to bear your greatest sin.

He knows your deepest sorrow. He sees your darkest fear.

Find your place here in the presence

of He whose fount of love is endless, whose mercy will not cease.

His presence is the one place you can fall upon your knees

and know He will surround you with grace that will increase.

Turn your heart unto His face, surrender everything

and there within His presence your weary soul will be washed clean.
