Closer Than I Know
I'm lost in fog. There's no sense in this world. No way to make it on my own.
Clearly we are doomed. We have sinned so deeply, left without a song.
God you seem so far away but I know I can't make it on my own.
I want to be close to you and you feel closer than I've ever known.
Closer to you, Lord. I want to be closer. You said you were here.
Closer that I've ever known is my heart's desire. You are very near.
I want what you want my dear savior for me and for all of my days.
You are closer that I know, and I love each moment. I will praise.
I can feel you close, Lord, I need you, I need you this very hour.
When I am near you and I walk with you give me your power.
Draw closer to me and forgive my hopeless human heart.
Bring me closer than I know and give me a fresh start.
Closer than I know I want to be closer than I've ever known.
You are here, oh yes, I know you are near.
