God is love, and all who live in love live in God,
and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).
1. I wait, still and silent.
I worship you, Lord.
I listen; I learn;
And I share.
2. I am your body,
Your breath, bone, and blood;
And we live as one, Lord,
3. You know all my feelings;
My thoughts, words, and deeds.
You are my light, truth,
4. You are my faith, and my hope,
And my love —
So, let’s start afresh, Lord,
1. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).
Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).
Worship the Lord in all his holy splendour (Psalm 96:9; NLT).
I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying (Psalm 85:8; NLT).
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart (Matthew 11:29; NKJV).
Pray about everything (Philippians 4:6; NLT).
Pour out your hearts to him (Psalm 62:8; NIV).
You desire honesty from the womb (Psalm 51:6; NLT).
2. You are Christ’s body (1 Corinthians 12:27; NASB).
You are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).
Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us (Colossians 3:11; NLT).
You have received the Holy Spirit and he lives within you (1 John 2:27; NLT).
Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).
3. O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me (Psalm 139:1; NLT).
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away (Psalm 139:2; NLT).
You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord (Psalm 139:4; NLT).
You know everything I do (Psalm 139:3; NLT).
The Lord is my light (Psalm 27:1; NLT).
I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6; NLT).
4. Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love
(1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).
Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord (Lamentations 3:40; KJV).
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-3; ESV).
