Today it has been one year since I was ill

I follow all the rules
Well, at least I’m trying
Hoping when my days are through
You’ll be pleased

I’ve lived the longest days
Thinking my heart was so bad
Too scared to look in your face
Oh, if only I had

And is it alright
If I stay here all night
By the shoreline

I cannot believe you are angry or unjust
You’ve done nothing but have compassion on us
So be near me when I’ve given up
Be near me

I’m just like everyone else
We are all hiding
Acting like I have a wealth
Of knowledge and peace

But all I’ve ever wanted
And what men have given their lives for
Is a God who understands my weaknesses
A God that I can love

And is it alright
If I stay here all night
By the shoreline

I cannot believe you are angry or unjust
You’ve done nothing but have compassion on us
So be near me when I’ve given up
Be near me

I believe you are good and righteous
You’ve given me your reckless love
So be near, be near…

Be Near Me Bethany Dillon
