Oh How I Need You Lord

Passion Band - Simple Pursuit (feat. Melodie Malone)

I Need You Now More than Ever

My sweet Jesus, I need you now more than I have ever known
Everything is changing all around me and I want to come home
I know you are helping me along the way, but Father I am so scared
You are my rock and my salvation, and I know you hear my prayers

My heart beats out of my chest and my breath seems to evade me
The world is in a pandemic and chaos roams the streets
I’m alone in this trial yet I know you are there, but my spirit yearns to come home
I’m just having a tough time adjusting to being quarantined, living life alone

Oh, dear Lord, please hear my cry for I don’t know what to do
The tears run down my face without control, and I now cling unto you
Lord, the states are shutting down and isolation comes for us all
Please Lord clear all this up before this great Nation falls

You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Great… I AM
I know you are in control, I’m leaning on you to stand
On the rock of my salvation my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ
Please hold me close give me your strength to stand up and fight

I need you Father; I need to take refuge under thy wings
To feel your power, strength, and love for me
I run to thee where I am safe, where you are near and hold me close
My heart is scared but your love gives my Spirit hope

I hold on to the hem of your garment, with power and your great glory
Knowing I am saved and have comfort from the Holy Ghost that you care for me
Lord, this world is in a panic and they’re shutting everyone down, we all need to lean on your strength
Through all this, we know that you will continue to lead us through the sands that wash up with the waves

Lord With You We Are Safe

Powerfully done with a sense of humanness and the encouragement of the Great I AM. Been sick for a while (not COBID-19) and need to get caught up here on HP.

Amen to the sentiments expressed in your poem. We need God and His protection as much as we ever did.

"I’m alone in this trial yet I know you are there, but my spirit yearns to come home

I’m just having a hard time adjusting to this quarantine and living this life alone."

You are not. He is with you.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 24, 2020:

We are all in the same boat. We must believe God has a plan to get through this..I am not afraid. We must do as the medical profession has laid out. Stay home, keep active in our home's, exercise. Fear will make you sick. Hugs.

Donna Rayne (author) from Greenwood, Indiana on March 23, 2020:

Love to all!

I trust that you are well in spirit. You are not weak by being afraid, it is natural to feel fear. But yes, isolation can bring other problems and I empathise. if you need to talk, then I am always here.

God loves us and Love is the greatest law.Be brave, be cheerful. Reach out to your community if you need to, people will help. Peace.
