He’s Ever Near
By Lance Landall

I felt my Saviour near me, in a gentle breeze that blew,
In a wisp of summer breath, that softly cooed, “I love you.”
In the warmth that bathed my face, as I sat and faced the sun,
Relaxing and reflecting on God’s grace and His dear Son.

I felt my Saviour near me, in a smile that soothed my heart,
A smile that had me singing, and saw shadows soon depart.
In a word that stilled my soul, had me feeling all was well,
In a touch that brushed my arm, and brought me under love’s spell.

I felt my Saviour near me, as I sniffed a flower’s scent,
And pondered on its beauty, and how much to Him I meant.
How He had surrounded me, with such artistry and thought,
And how He had redeemed me, and into my life, hope brought.

I felt my Saviour near me, as I stood and watched the stars,
And thought of His returning, and how soon I’d see His scars.
I thought about the angel that beside me spends each day,
And again, felt Jesus near me, though in Heaven far away.

I felt my Saviour near me, via the chirping of a bird,
Via the bubbling of a brook, and its playfulness I heard.
Via the sound of someone’s laugh, that lifted my spirits too,
And reminded me that God, the impossible can do.

I felt my Saviour near me, as I stopped to help someone,
And I thought of how He too, that very same thing, would’ve done.
How He healed the lame and sick, and offered them life anew,
How that when we’re in Heaven, no more heartache we’ll go through.

I felt my Saviour near me, as I wandered down a lane,
Where the beauty of nature, whispered my Creator’s name.
Where a picturesque sunset, or a colourful rainbow,
Would so often remind me, of this loving God I know.
