You’re Still Here

Words to a song I wrote when home sick with MS for a few weeks in the late 90’s. A much more “Christian”  song than the next one I wrote about the disease a few years later. Still, some good thoughts perhaps.

YOU’RE STILL HERE Seems those worship songs of yesterday Rarely moved my heart or eyes your way Too busy with things and making plans Never made the time to care

Now days roll by where it’s all I got Just to make my coffee and pour a cup Before I stumble to bed, turn out the light Pray for strength for what comes next

(chorus) But times like these when I can’t do much,  that’s when you come around and fill my cup It’s then I find these simple songs mean somethin’ after all Cuz you’re still here My all in all in all in all in all

In those foolish days of health it seems That I locked you out of all my dreams My highest regards, deepest respect Never felt to me like love

So I thank you now that my worst fears have left my mind and joined me here Where they’re starting to look a little bit like blessings from your hand


(bridge) And I’ve seen you now like never before and you’re lovely I’ve seen you now and I want some more, so just show me Take my arms, and feet, and legs – and lips, and heart, and bones, and everything else

They’re yours anyway

Though you slay me, yet will I trust you Though you slay me, yet will I trust you Though you slay me, yet will I trust you Though you slay me, yet will I trust you
