To Know Your Presence Here

You bless every heartbeat
Every breath we share
So, intimate our binding
To know Your Presence here

When in darkest valley
A faithful turn to prayer
Comfort in the finding
To know Your Presence here

You love us completely
Compassionately care
Peace of the instilling
To know Your Presence here

Soul of the transforming
If we’re fully aware
Eternal perspective
To know Your Presence here

Here’s is My One

Here is the one
I cherish, adore
I offer my treasures
Of gifts to outpour

So undeserving
Cast that thought away
Come close my child
Be with Me and pray

It’s my great desire
For you to know
My love completely
Come let me show

Fall here within
My loving embrace
Know the Word spoken
A being of grace

Here is the One

Here is the One
Our Savior, our King
Creator of all
Of which angels sing

Here is the light
Our hope and our joy
With facets of blessings
Of gifts to enjoy

Here is the love
That every soul seeks
Our great comforter
Of the lost and the weak

Here’s all we need
To fill our souls’ longing
Who welcomes all
With eternal belonging


Losing direction
A moving to prayer
We find in Your Presence
Our being here

No sense of purpose
Have hit a snare
A binding in You
Our becoming here

Worries surround me
World filled with fear
Under Your wing
Our security here

Feeling so needy
A calling to share
Blessings bestowing
Our fulfilling here

Something of Here

Taking a moment
To breathe in the light
In this being here
All seems just right

Something is here
In drawing of deep
Within letting go
The Spirit now seeps

A drifting beyond
Within of above
Where I want to be
In gifting of love

The answer unto
Of searching to find
The something of here
Your Presence divine

Merton’s, And Yet I am “Here”

You’ve made us together
You have made us one
One and the many
In binding of Son

You have placed me here
A witness in the midst
As awareness and joy
In this moment exist

Here I am, in me
The world is present, true
Soul can clearly see
You are present too

Connected, I’m a link
Binding this insight
One within the chain
Of presence and of light

For you have made me
A center of some kind
But of this center
That of nowhere find

And still, yet I am “here”
“Here”, now let us say
Right under these trees
Not others here this day

Letting You Here

Sway with the tall grass
Drift with the breeze
Deep of the fresh air
Posture at ease

Rolling waves gentle
Arise into blue
Above of the dwelling
Horizon the view

Sipping of silence
Ears, letting go
Sweet bird of chirping
Comfort to know

Clear is the vision
To slip into prayer
Easy the setting
Of letting you here
