MY SOUL WITH YOU
the comfort found close to God's heart
(from Psalm 131 & Psalm 23)

 

Oh Lord, my heart is not proud nor my eyes lifted up
I don't involve myself in things too great or difficult
Like a weaned child at its mother's breast
My soul with You finds comfort and rest
My soul with You finds comfort and rest


Oh Lord, I hunger and thirst, feel so weary and worn
Tired from traveling many miles battered by the storm
As a baby lamb longs for pastures green
Close to my Shepherd I want to be
Close to my Shepherd I want to be
 

Oh Lord, my heart is not proud nor my eyes lifted up
I don't involve myself in things too great or difficult
Like a weaned child at its mother's breast
My soul with You finds comfort and rest
My soul with You finds comfort and rest

From 1986 to 1999, Rev. Wayne Anderson led a series of
spiritual intimacy seminars at Crossroads Study Center in Framingham MA..
This song, and many others, were inspired by those teachings.

The Scriptures describe our relationship with the Lord with such intimacy!
A weaned child no longer needs physical nourishment from the mother,
but still longs for the closeness...

Lyrically and musically, I enjoy this song,
particularly the use of multiple alliteration in verse two.

 

"The songs from your site have reawakened my own creativity. 
I am not a poet or a songwriter, and only God appreciates my singing. 
My talent is story-telling.  Listening to your music has caused my mind to create 
a hero who is a singer songwriter.  When the story is fit to read, 
I'd like permission to use some of your lyrics in it... 
Right now I'm thinking about "By Your Abundant Love", "Peace I Give You"
"My Soul With You", and "Wisdom and Might" ..."
