Ask not this question



Thesounds of life come to me
Pulsatingout your care,
Thecars out on the highway
Andthe birds up in the air.
Thebreezes in the garden
Waftingperfume from each flower,
Allserve as a reminder
Ofyour awesome might and power.

Asknot this question of me,Whowill draw close to me?
ButJesus bring me nearerSoeach day I will be free.

Eachday O Lord restore me
AndI will return to you.
Giveme real understanding
Inthe things, I say and do.
Disgraceand shame are burdens
Icarry from my youth.
Eachday I need forgiveness
Anda life within your truth.

Asknot this question of me,Whowill draw close to me?
ButJesus bring me nearerSoeach day I will be free.

Letmy soul be like a mother
Givingbirth with life anew.
Inthe quiet times of reflection
Andthe things I say and do.
Letmy milk of human kindness
Benourishment to all.
Letthe sweetness of your spirit
Touchthe lives of all you call.

Asknot this question of me,Whowill draw close to me?
ButJesus bring me nearerSoeach day I will be free.
