I love music!  And while I am not above buying a CD I am attracted to because of the ‘popular song’ heard perhaps too often on the radio,  I really love the gems that are on the CD that the radio seems to miss.  This is one of those songs.  I wish I could play it for you, but the lyrics will have to do.  And perhaps it will be even more poignant to consider the lyrics, without deciding to dismiss them because you don’t like the tune.

Be Thou Near To Me by Selah

Oh Lord I come with heart here open,
For in my hour of darkness I’m in need.
Seeking the joy of love unspoken
Oh Lord be Thou near to me.

And the holy voices “Hallelu!”
Ever will Thy reign be.
As I wander through this life,
Oh Lord, be Thou near to me.

Though In this burden of my making
Yet in the shadows still a light I see
Maker whose love is not forsaking
Oh lord be thou near to me

And the holy voices “Halleluja!”
Ever will Thy reign be.
As I wander through this life,
Oh Lord, be Thou near to me.

And the holy voices “Hallelu!”
Ever will Thy reign be.
As I wander through this life,
Oh Lord, be Thou near to me.

Oh Lord
Be thou near
To me.
