This is my glory - that I can’t out grow grace/
This is my glory - to know the hunger and the bread/
This is my glory - to feel the incomplete/

May His face shine upon you
May His graciousness be like an endless stream
May the Lord show His favour

Until last remaining strains of striving cease

When your heart is in despair
He will know
When you feel beyond repair
He will know
When your day is filled with tears
He will hear
When your night is filled with fear
He is near
When this world leaves you behind
He will know
When it all seems so unkind
He will know

He Will Know – Music and Lyric by Byron O’Donnell and Brian Wakelin. Sung by Steve Bell.

Be beside me, the wind on my left and right
Be behind me, oh circle me with Your truth and light
