Cover Me

Cover me like a river
Rushing deep with life.
Come to me like a lover
Returning in the night.
You are the truth,
You are the strength,
You are love and You are light.
You are warmth, You are shelter,
You are all I have.
I need You to surround me,
So I can breathe again;
I feel Your kiss upon me,
Burning through my skin

Run to me like a brother
When I’m wounded in the fight;
Stay with me like a mother,
I need You by my side.
Be my hope, be my prayer,
Be my watchman in the night:
While this flame dimly flickers,
Hold me in Your arms.
I need You to sustain me
Through this darkest night.
I feel Your fire within me,
Somewhere deep inside.

Won’t You hear my cry?
Like an angel coming to me.
Like a healer, You renew me.
Like a fire You consume me.
Like a Savior You give me Your life.
You’ve given me Your life,
You give me Your life.
You give me Your life
