Son-Day: "By Your Side"


By Your Side
By: Tenth Avenue North
Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you


Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world's sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, I love you
I'll never let you go
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is truth to be found in all things,
what truth am I seeking?
There is hope to be found in all things,
what hope am I seeking?
There is faith to be found in all things,
what faith am I seeking?
There is charity to be found in all things,
what charity am I seeking?
There is LOVE to be found in all things,
what LOVE am I seeking?
Dear Father,
help me seek the things to fill my soul,
to strengthen my spirit.
In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ,
I pray today, Amen.

Just the right post for a beautiful Sunday. I'm glad you included the lyrics, so I could read along as I listened. That was special.
