Desperately Near

When I fall You catch me
Please catch me today
Catch me right now
Before I fade away

I’m sorry I wandered
Sorry I waned
Sorry I faltered and
Failed in this way

But You love me always
This much is clear
This much is true
As You kiss all my tears

Stay with me always
Don’t leave me be
Don’t stay away
Come closer to me

‘Cause I’m desperately wanting
Desperate to hear
Desperate to have You come
Desperately near
