Right Beside Me
Lord Jesus, I sweat in the heat of the battle; I fought through the dust and the shadows yet You never left my side. I stood at the top of the world, I swam through the depths of my soul and no matter what I find, drought or famine, high and low … wherever I go … You're right beside me.
Jeremiah 23:23-24 – “Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? 24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.” Psalms 139:7-10 – “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Deuteronomy 4:39 - “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.” Joshua 1:9 - “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Matthew 28:20b - “… and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
In the rising flame, in the pouring rain, even in the flood, I'm safe with You, Lord. You hold all the pieces together, You bring me strength in the desert, You defend my soul. No height, no depth, no grave … nothing on earth can keep you away! This truth I know: Wherever I go, You’re right beside me.
