Tenderly You Turn…

Lord God, tenderly you turn…

Oh how tempted I can be
Not to turn to you
Not to see
The glimpse of grace
Upon your face
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!

And the courage I so need
Just to turn to you
Just to see
The glimpse of grace
Within your eyes
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!

But the mercy I receive
As I turn to you
As I see
The glimpse of grace
Despite your tears
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!

Oh the forgiveness I can know
When I turn to you
When I see
The glimpse of grace
From the cross
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!

Psalm 36:7a is repeated as reminder that Lent is a time to remember how precious the steadfast love of the God is to us.  May we all turn to receive this precious love each new day!
