Don't Take Your Love From Me written by Susan H Fouts

As I was thinking

The thought occurred to me

How much I depend on things around me

My home, my family and I thank You Lord for them

But You can be my only source of joy and peace

Father, I lean upon your mercy

Every moment of the day

I need You

Though sometimes I don't show it

Still You know me better than I know myself

I can see that in Your Word

You've done it all for me

The work which you have started

You'll complete it

Until the day that Jesus Christ returns

Lord, You're mighty and able to perform it for me.

I lay them all at Your feet, Lord Jesus,

And I hold nothing back

You can take my life, my family, my possessions,

But don't take Your love away from me.
