What Is With Thee


As I awake each morning
My thoughts reach out to you
A joy within me singing
Jesus, I love you  too

With anxious heart I hurry
There is so much to do
A dying world you’ve shown me
I’ll save it Lord for you

I charge with holy fury
Heathens scatter — it is she
With shield and armor ready
Lord aren’t you proud of me?

A more true and faithful worker
You’ll never find than me
But I haven’t felt your presence
Lord, I’m feeling so wea—ry

His words pierce through my spirit
He asks “What is with thee?”
I waited at my table
But you just rushed past me

I have so much to tell you
Plans for your good on-ly
You never stop to listen
Why won’t you talk to me?

Today I’m not so weary
And some will even say
She’s never in a hurry
You see, I’ve learned to pray.
