Be Near Me

Verse 1

Stockings were hung by the chimney with care.

While someone is hoping that you will be there.

Through all of the joy of this grand Christmas time,

Someone is silently crying inside.

Verse 2

The children are nestled all snug in their beds,

With mixed up illusions and thoughts in their heads.

Will someone show them the Way, Truth and Light?

Or will they keep silently crying inside?

Chorus

Be near me Lord Jesus.

I ask Thee to stay,

Close by me forever

And love me I pray.

Bless all the dear children,

In Thy tender care.

And take us to Heaven

To live with Thee there.

Bridge

Be near me Lord Jesus.

 I ask Thee to stay. (repeat)
