I belong

I Belong

Another day, in my life I see
Thank you Lord, for giving me
Mark my way, so I’ll never stray
Away from you, come what may
I do believe, that you are near
Lord you relieve, all my fear
With your grace, each night and day
Life I’ll face, and win my way
Sometimes I’m so heartless
Sometimes so cold
But deep inside I feel your love and  calling I hold
Makes me reassess and seek your holiness
Lord, you’re my road to happiness
Time again you forgive
My trespasses and make me live
Help me Lord, to be firm and strong
And turn away, from all wrong
On your road, step me on
You know to love you more, how much I long
Hold me Lord, all along
To you Lord, I belong

And my spirit exults in God my Savior
