Come away with Me awhile
and let Me visit now with you.
Let your thoughts turn only to Me
and let Me fill your mind
with what I have for you.
All other thoughts, release them,
release into My care.
You belong to Me.
You are Mine alone.
And in such closeness will I hold you
and care for you,
and show you My love.
It surpasses all things of this world
when you know My peace.
I have asked you to be in this world,
but not of it.
The sorrows come not from Me,
but I will see you through them all.
Just turn to Me, as a child to his father.
My protection is over all of you,
providing the comfort only I can give.
Only trust that I can do this.
Trust Me for this moment, for this day,
for all your days.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone
loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is
in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
(1 John 2:15,16)
