Can You Hear Me Now?

Written By: Rosemary Anne Befort Shiever

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

I was born a child of God
Raised in a “Christian” home
But then something happened
And I felt the need to roam

I didn’t seem to listen
To those who loved me the most
I didn’t care where I ventured
As I wandered from coast to coast

Dear God, can you hear me now
As I fall on bended knees
Walking through this journey all alone
But when I think of you
Your light comes a shinin’ through
Then in my heart, I know I’m not alone

Trouble seemed to find me
More than a time or two
I had my share of heartaches
And nightmares to wade through

Then I picked up a bible
But I didn’t really understand
Oh Lord, if you hear me now
Will you take me by the hand

Please God, can you hear me now
As I fall on bended knees
Walking through this journey all alone
But when I think of you
Your light comes a shinin’ through
Then in my mind, I can feel I’m not alone

Then one day I grew up
Reality eventually settled in
I knew that I’d been playin’ a game
I was never gonna win

As I reached out to others
They turned their backs on me
Now I am devoted to you
I love you, don’t you see

My God, can you hear me now
As I fall on bended knees
Walking through this journey all alone
But, when I think of you
Your light comes a shinin’ through
You’ve cleansed my soul to lead me the way home

So, when I think of you
Your light comes a shinin’ through
Now I know I’ll never be alone
Yes, I know that I’ll never be alone

Enlighten Me, Oh Lord

Written By: Rosemary Anne Befort Shiever

ENLIGHTEN ME, OH LORD

Enlighten me, Oh Lord, I pray
When wisdom is what I seek
Comfort me when I am frightened
Guard me when I am weak

And if others talk bad about me
The way they sometimes do
Guide me with your everlasting light
Please let it shine on through

Enlighten me with your light ever shining
Oh lead me with your love, show me the way
Enlighten me by your love, shine it ever brightly, Lord
Enlighten me with your light, now hear me pray

If the road gets too rough for me
Oh Lord, be there when I fall
Give me thy hope to carry on
In whatever you choose as my call

When they say that I am a little bit different
For my lack of experience shows
Console me as I shed these dreadful tears
Cause you’re the only one who knows

Enlighten me with your light ever shining
Give me a sign from the heavens above, show me the way
Enlighten me with your light, shine it ever brightly, Lord
Enlighten me with your light, everyday

Enlighten me, Oh Lord, I pray
Cover me with your angel’s wings
Help me to continue by your will
No matter what tomorrow brings

Enlighten me with your everlasting love
Enlighten me by your great gift of faith
Enlighten me in your obedience and trust
Oh now, let HOPE come lead the way, Yea, Yea,

Enlighten me with your light ever brightly
Lead me with your angels, I’ll follow your way
Enlighten me with your light, shine it ever brightly, Lord
Enlighten me with your light, shine on me today!
Enlighten me with your light every brightly, Lord
Enlighten me as I follow your path, show me the way
Enlighten me with your light, shine it ever brightly, Lord
Enlighten me in your love, now I can find the way!
