Come Near (poem by me)

Lord, You said You would never leave
or forsake Your beloved any day
so Your promise leads me to believe
I am the one who has gone astray.

How did I cause You to sorrow and grieve?
In what way did I knowingly disobey?
There is nothing I can conceive
That should cause my soul to betray.

For You are living water to my soul,
Help me to press onward to the goal.

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 3:14
