"KEEP SPEAKING TO ME"

Verse 1
Floating along, taking my own time,
Following my own thoughts, whatever came to mind.
Sure, I was serving, but in my own way.
Didn't have the inclination to hear what You had to say.
And so I stumbled, I fell,
And well, it seemed so close to Hell,
Not knowing where to go,
But then I turned to You, and now I know …

Chorus 1
I need Your guiding voice to survive.
Without You near, I'm barely alive.
I cling to You like a leaf on a tree.
I need You just that desperately.
Without Your Words, I just fade away,
Blown down on the first windy day.
Hold me close, Your strength I need.
I need You to keep speaking to me.
-
Please don't ever stop Your Words to me.

Verse 2
Even when I tried, I'd somehow drift away,
Wasn't getting my directions from You every day.
I never understood that in my troubled hour,
Your Words could bring into my life such strength and power.
And soon when darkness covers all the Earth
And none can see, I'll have Your Word.
I'll find my way, Your Voice my light,
And I'll make it safely through that night.

Repeat Chorus 1

Bridge
Not one step, my Lord, alone.
I will follow as I am shown.
No more fears, no more groping.
My ears, my mind, my heart are open to You.

Music Break:

Chorus 2
Without Your Words, I just fade away,
Blown down on the first windy day.
Hold me close, Your strength I need.
I need You to keep speaking to me, hey, yeah.

Lord, I need You.
Keep speaking to me.
Yeah, e, yeah, hey.
