God is just a mile away to those of little faith,
But my God is just a cry away and has never once been late.
God can hear the faintest cry or even the deepest sigh.
God can hear a fallen bird just before he dies.

Sometimes loud, sometimes low, I hear this voice inside
God is talking to my soul and the joy is hard to hide.
And as we put our trust in Him
When times are dark and bleak,
Youíll find Him down inside of you,
Just take the time to seek.

So if He seems so far away
That your soul is disquiet within,
Heavens doors seem closed to you,
Then check your life for sin.

For God is not a mile away,
Heís knocking at your door,
Listen for his tender voice,
I love you, donít you know?

Heaven is so far away
When troubles are drawing near,
But the sensitive ear of Calvaryís Lamb
Can hear a falling tear.

Faith is all you need today
To approach the Heavenly throne.
Youíll never have to feel forsaken,
Heís never left you alone.

My Mother

Welcome to Passions, Patsy! Yes He is always near! (but I don't have to check for sin, it usually smacks me in the face! ) Very well done piece.
