Near to the Heart of God
Oh, that the place of quiet rest
Would really belong to me.
Oh, to experience that wonderful peace
That, in Christ, would set me free.
Oh, to enter the Holy Place
Where life is calm and serene;
Where all my heart is drawn to Him
With nothing in between.
Oh, to walk through the storms of life
And as we walk that sod,
No matter the battle, to quietly know
We're near to the heart of God.
Oh, dear God, from this day on,
May the miracle never cease;
May we enter into rest
And resting, live in peace.
