More Here

I want to be more here
Here, because I know
That you, my God, are here
Let this knowledge flow

I know that you love me
And all I need is here
Therefore, here I will sit
A grateful heart to share

To thank you, faithful God
With I AM as Your name
To thank you for your Son
To be with us, we claim

Thank you for the Spirit
So deeply flowing through
Though sometimes I don’t feel it
I know it to be true

Just as I am breathing
A feeling that’s sublime
And so, I know You’re with me
Though, don’t feel it all the time

(based upon words by Henri Nouwen)
