    I know that you bring out the best in me
    Is it because you are my destiny?
    Your light guides me where ever I go
    Its the beacon to my faithful soul
    Because of you I can always find my way home
    And with you I am never left alone

    You are my water in dry places
    My solace in a sea of empty faces
    You gave the words that guide my feet to walk
    When on bended knees it is alone with you I talk

    You are the food for my soul
    My soul food, more precious to me then gold
    Here I stand as only I can be
    If you can use anything, you can use me
    Use me until you use me up
    Use me til nothing more fills my cup

    All I ask is that you continue to feed the hunger
    So I can reach that point where I will no longer wonder
    I will thirst no more and no longer be empty
    Fill me with all that is good and plenty

    Once sated I will then be in pleasant sleep
    I will meet you at the top of the highest peak
    Then take me to that place I can be whole
    The place where you feed me the food for my soul



    Dedicated to my Father in Heaven.

    He is the master chef. No plate, fork or spoon needed. Open your mouth in praise, your heart in love and receive.
