Let me be attentive to you, my King,
still and waiting,
seeking your presence,
at rest in trusting you,
knowing you’ll move, you’ll speak,
when you choose,
in your way and timing —
let it be my delight to follow you.
As the world dims and darkens,
your light shines more brightly within,
hope and joy lifting my head to your glory eternal,
that I can only dimly perceive.
I take heart in your hand
hemming me in from behind,
your Spirit going before me,
and your Word and presence
making your heart and desires clear.
You lead me step by step,
down your winding, narrow path,
leading me to rest,
green pastures, quiet waters,
paths of righteousness,
and my spirit expands and is strengthened.
Let me walk with you like Enoch did,
faithfully here on earth
and all the way up to heaven,
that my life and death would count for you,
all for your glory, honor, and praise.
