Stay with me this early morn. I know not what awaits. The hurts of yesterday have played. Help me release their weights. Throughout my day, please never leave. To you, I want to cleave. Dear God, I need your strength. Please, oh please, don’t leave. Stay with me this afternoon. I’ve already lost my way. I’ve hurt, I’ve lied, I’ve even sworn. I fear what I might say. With you by my side, the more I do achieve. Please help my heart, to you receive. Dear God, I need your strength. Please, oh please, don’t leave. Stay with me; the night is late. Come be my only light. Today I’ve risen, and I failed, as I gave love and spite. Into my soul, I need you now. Please heal me as I grieve. Dear God, I need your strength. Please, oh please, don’t leave.
