    My God is Not A Distant God

    My God is not a distant God
    Nor one that’s hard to understand
    He goes with me along life’s road
    And holds my hand

    And steadies me when roads are rough
    And helps when hills are hard to climb
    And when the going’s extra tough
    I cling to him

    My Christ is not a cruel Christ
    Patient and kind and true is he
    He made me, through Him I exist
    He died for me

    He hears each faint prayer I repeat
    He knows the very thoughts I think
    He gives His flesh to me to eat
    His blood to drink

    My God is not a cruel God
    He smiles on each good deed I do
    He only frowns on sin and fraud
    My lover true.
