Lord Forever In Your Presence

Larry Holder Music


(Verse 1)
Lord, forever in Your presence
Is not time enough to praise You
For the glory of Your awesome, holy Name:
You are Master and Creator,
My Brother and my Savior
Whose love will never change.

Lord, forever in Your presence
What a joy to sing your praises,
For to You I owe my life and all I am:
I'm a child of the Kingdom,
Now alive in Your freedom;
Through Your love, by Your grace alone I stand.

To Your throne I run --
On my knees I fall --
From my heart I cry:
You're my Lord, my All!
Lord, forever in Your presence I'll stay,
I run to You!

(Verse 2)
Lord, forever in Your presence
As I bow my head to listen
To the voice of the Shepherd of my soul.
As Your Spirit dwells within me,
To guide and to defend me
I seek Your will to know.

Lord, forever in Your presence,
You're my Anchor, my Assurance;
I am humbled by the power of Your love.
May I always live to serve You,
Though I never could deserve You,
My Lord and my God in heav'n above.

(Repeat Chorus Two Times)
To Your throne I run --
On my knees I fall --
From my heart I cry:
You're my Lord, my All!

To Your throne I run --
On my knees I fall --
From my heart I cry:
You're my Lord, my All!
You're my Lord, my All!
Lord, forever in Your presence I'll stay,
I run to You!
