He knows your need before you even ask.
He knows the things your heart can’t even say.
He hears your cry before a tear can even start to fall.
He’s there beside you each and every day.
But you must reach, and take the hand He offers.
He’ll never force His way into your heart.
He’s waiting, now, for you to call out to Him;
He’s ready, friend, to give you a new start.
So won’t you lay aside the things that bind you
To what the world, in emptiness, would give;
Then open wide your heart to meet the Savior,
Who died and rose again, so you could live?
For He is there beside you every moment;
And knows the things your broken heart would say.
Just cry out to Him now, and let His mercy set you free;
For He can take your guilt and sin away.
For God loved you so much
that he gave his one and only Son,
so that if you believe in Him, you will not perish
but have eternal life. John 3:16 (paraphrased)
