Jesus, Are You Here?

Jesus, are you here?
I'm kneeling on the floor,
Knocking at your door,
But I can't seem to feel
If your presence is still real
Or that you're even near.

Can you hear me pray?
You said you would be there
When I come in prayer.
Do you really know
That I need you so?
Please speak to me today.

My burdens are so great!
But I believe you care
And will these trials share;
If I just let them go,
You can your power show
While I in patience wait.

Lord Jesus, now I see
I need not seek for you,
Your promises are true.
I give you all my care
And you the weight will bear
For you ARE here with me!
