I’ve Never Felt So Close

“I’ve Never Felt So Close” was inspired by the story of a friend’s real life encounter with the comforting words of Psalm 73:28… 

“But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.”

I have no idea who might be encouraged by this song…I only know that I’m supposed to offer it…not just to tell the story of the one who lived it but for the one who someday will. 

“I’ve Never Felt So Close”

I won’t forget when I got the news

They said they did everything they could do

I’ve never been so alone and so afraid

A flood of fear had come to wash my hopes away

 

But in that room where my world turned so dark

He came to me and whispered to my heart

“I’m here with you, I heard your cry”

And in that moment I realized

 

I’ve never felt so close to the Lord

I’ve never known His presence like this before

In my time of greatest need

Like a friend He stood by me

I’ve never felt so close to the Lord

 

There was a peace I can’t explain

I even heard Him say my name

And with Him so near I knew it very well

The storm had passed before the last raindrop fell

 

Cho…
