The clock ticks relentlessly as I sit here with You.
It knows all the things I desire and must do.
With rhythm so steady it beckons me away
From the peace of Your presence to face a new day.
How I long for the luxury of more time spent with Thee
Where instead of feeling rushed I can simply "just be"
Alone in Your presence, wrapped up in Your love,
My mind not on earthly things but focused above.
Lord, open my eyes and please help me to see
That as long as You're with me I can simply "just be."
