On my knees before Thee Lord
Oh, what shall I ask of Thee?
My needs are great, my wants are greater still!
Are You there, dear Lord, to hear my plea?
Sweet child, I am here always with you as I've promised
Leave your needs; set down your wants
For I hold them tightly within My heart
Please desire instead to focus wholly on Me
I was with you in your making
I have watched you as you've grown
I was there each time you fell
to kiss your cheek and help you stand
Back on your feet you swiftly ran
instead of staying Home with Me
I know you well, better even than you know yourself
I know each need and every want
and in good time your heart's desire will be met
But, I tell you, first you must be free
My Truth will set you free, indeed
So when you cry, "Lord, what shall I ask of Thee?"
My reply will be, "Forget your needs,forget your wants -
Instead, from deep within,
ask ye only for Me"
