Help me a find a place to meet you, Lord:
a shady place, a grove of grace,
where you and I might meet and sit
together in the silence, in the shade, away
from all the noise that fills my mind...
Help me find a summer refuge at the shore
or in the fields or on some mountain top:
a grotto of your presence, Lord, a haven
where I'll find with you the peace
my heart desires...
This summer, Lord,
help find a place to meet you
down the road or out of town
or even close to home:
a place where we might meet and sit
together in the silence, in the shade
and in the prayer that makes us one...
You need not travel far to find a summer place
to meet the Lord and spend some time with him:
tt might be your back yard, your porch or deck
or just a favorite chair close by an open window...
Wherever you are, he's with you;
wherever you travel, he's by your side;
wherever you go, he'll be there to meet you
whenever you arrive...
