Play the song ‘When You Are Near’ by Jeremy Camp

Lyrics:

There’s no need to say a thing,
When I’m before you
In this silence I feel
Refreshed with peace
Break this noise that binds
the voice that tries speak
open up my eyes to see
Your gracious sovereign reach

It’s hard to talk
when I feel that you are near,
When all is quiet
it’s the beauty that I hear,
This hidden place
where I know that you calm my fears
I know that you’ve washed my tears

The seasons of change I’ve faced
Have never left me wounded
Only scars of hurt
But never deeply rooted
This healing I have felt
No burden can replace
Redemptive hope has been
the story of my pain

It’s hard to talk
when I feel that you are near,
When all is quiet
it’s the beauty that I hear,
This hidden place
where I know that you calm my fears
I know that you’ve washed my tears

All is lost
without the breath of life you give
And you give so much
I want nothing more than you so here’s my heart
Here’s my heart

It’s hard to talk
when I feel that you are near,
When all is quiet
it’s the beauty that I hear,
This hidden place
where I know that you calm my fears
I know that you’ve washed my tears
