Song Lyrics


Standing in Your Presence Lord
We're resting in Your Presence Holy Spirit
Touch me now, touch me Lord...

My heart longs for a touch for the sweet breath of love,
My heart longs for a touch from You Lord
To be welcome again in the arms of a friend
My heart longs for a touch from You Lord
To be closer, closer to You
To be nearer, nearer to You
To be one heart, one mind, one soul with You
To be closer to You
To be one heart, one mind with You
Touch me Lord

My heart longs for a word, for my cry to be heard
My heart longs for a touch from You Lord.
To be fed from above with the manna of love
My heart longs for a touch from You Lord (Repeats)

I worship, I worship I worship You Lord
Come inhabit my praise (Repeats)
For You alone are my righteousness
You alone are my joy
You alone are the strength of my life, my God

You are the strength of my life (Repeats)

By you I can run through a troop
By You I can leap over a wall
By You I can stand in the face of my enemies
For You have laid a table in the wilderness for me
And I will feed on You
And I will find my strength again
And I will feed on You
I'll feed on the table you laid before me in the wilderness
You have laid a table in the midst of my enemies
And I will find feed on You
And I will find my strength (Repeats) again
Find my strength in You

Standing (x3) on the promises of God




Song Notes

Ray's Exhortation

The Bible verse says having done all to stand. Sometimes you know there is not much more you can do. You've tried everything you know and you're still not there. Sometimes I think its just in the standing - thats when things really start to move. Because the Lord said stand still you, do not need to fight this battle. There are some battles you just cant fight. They are too big for us. Its alright to admit that. David said its too big for me I can't handle it. I guess thats why we need God. Thats a good place to be. Why dont we all just stand in His presence and say "Lord, there is not much more I can do about this situation. I've done everything I know to do. I've confessed your word. I've believed, now all I can do is stand. So I'm not even going to tell you what I need because the Word says You know what I need before I ask. You heard me the first time. You're not deaf. You heard me the first time. Now all I can do is stand. I'm standing... I'm standing in the wilderness where you've prepared a table for me in the presence of my enemies who taunt me continually. Every day and every night. Every night I hear their taunt. And I'm not even answering them. I'm not saying anything back. I'm just standing in Your Presence. And here I stand, so help me God!
