I come to church and worship Jesus. I reverence His holy name. Brothers and sisters of the same faith are there. We’re so glad each other came. Each service lasts an hour or two, the Son of God, we proclaim. We take Jesus with us. We see His work so plain. We see Jesus everywhere. He’s with us in the sunshine and with us in the rain. We see Him at work in our prayers. He stays with us through our pains. He chastises us when we’re wrong, protects us all the same. We see Him when we meet other Christians, Who display His truth and light. He’s with us to guide our ways, a lamp shining through the night. We lean on Him with fatigue, how unsearchable His might. He lifts us up when we are down. He always wins our fight. His angels they surround us, when trials tempt us sore. Jesus is in the midst of them. He loves us all the more. The loving Master, One touch from His hand, He will settle all of our scores. All we do is walk and talk with Him and He will always go before. His power overwhelming, God’s Spirit filled with love. We cannot fake His Spirit that comes from above. How mighty the Spirit that lives in us for eternity. We will always see, Jesus in everything. The miracle lives in thee.
