Be Next to Me (Everlasting Life)
There’s a battle up aheadI’m in the desert all aloneSeems no way around itAnd it’s the only road to homeYou’ve been so good to meSo many times beforeThere’s no reason to doubt you now—Love will open up the doorRefrain:I found the faith I need to growIt’s in my heart, just let it showA million angels sing to you – I will tooNow I can look ahead and seeThe face of Hope, serenityFather and Son and Spirit beNext to meBe next to meKeep your lessons in my pocketHold your wisdom in my headWhen darkness tries to hurt meHold up the truth insteadSweet water runs outsideAnd flows into the seaWash us all - lead us by your callBring us back and set us freeI found the faith I need to growIt’s in my heart, just let it showA million angels sing to you – I will tooNow I can look ahead and seeThe face of Hope, serenityFather and Son and Spirit beNext to meBe next to meI’m really thrown - it’s unexpected but expected to move on;In a minute I’m within it – nothing’s real, not earth or stone;Travel under, travel over, find my balance - where I’m from;On this table, spin the rattle - shut the noise out of my home;Keep the faith, believe the truth, let Jesus set the captives free;That’s the love we seek—the peace, the joy, the hope - the rest for me;Something new and something realNot based on just how I feelSubstance of a strength so strongEverlasting life goes on..and on and on and on...
