Come and sit with us Lord
We have nothing to hide
Your presence is needed here
To lead us and to guide

There is nothing in our thoughts
Of which we are ashamed
There is nothing in our speech
That should not be named

All we want dear Lord
Is for You to be a part
Of our talk and interaction
Right from the very start

We want You here with us
To keep our conversation pure
We want You to be our guide
Of this we are so sure

We want You to watch us
For You are in our hearts to stay
We need Your love and guidance
Each and every day

We want to do Your will
To spread Your love abroad
We want You to keep us
From committing any fraud

So come and sit with us
Be ever at our side
We need Your loving presence
To ever lead us and to guide

Sometimes I wonder
At how little people care
For their sisters and brothers
And how they may fair

So busy with running
This way and that
Not even seeing
Where it's all at

Always looking for praise
And buying into lies
They can't even raise
Their eyes to the skies

If they would only look
They might truly see
Their Saviour who forsook
Heaven for you and me

First they would see
The star proclaim His birth
And angels singing sweetly
Over all the earth

Next they'd see the cross
Where He shed His precious blood
He did not count it a loss
To free us in a crimson flood

And then they'd see His glory
As He rose triumphant from the grave
They'd see it's more than a story
And they'd know their sins He forgave

Then maybe they would realize
The world has nothing to offer
And they'd see beyond the lies
And to God entrust their future
