watching over me

early morning, but later than I should be
know you’re watching, taking care of me
I feel it happening as I wake from my sleep
You are always watching over me

another harsh word is slipping from my mouth
cant’ retract it, now it all goes south
I really should finally figure this one out
You are always watching over me

With a steady love like Yours
Why can’t I imitate
The ready hand you stretch
out to recover my mistakes
Comforts me to know
You are watching

Day is grinding, slowly wearing me away
Taking captives of things I want to say
Saps the energy I need to go a better way
You are always watching over me

Find my refuge in the hollow of Your hand
A place of learning that I am a mortal man
With no hope of staying any longer than I can stand
You are always watching over me

With a steady love like Yours
Why can’t I imitate
The ready hand you stretch
out to recover my mistakes
Comforts me to know
You are watching
Watching over me
