You are with me!
You are with me. I go out on the street, and You walk with me. I go to work, and You are at my side. While I sleep, You watch over my dreams. You are not a detective who spies; You are a Father who takes care of me. At times I feel like shouting: I am a child lost in the forest, I am alone, no one loves me. Soon I hear Your response: I am with you, be not afraid.
In You, my roots are fed. I wrap myself in Your arms. You are with me. With the palm of Your right hand, You cover my head. With the light of Your eyes, You penetrate my depths. I am a child who is cold, and You warm me with Your breath.
You know perfectly well when I am at rest and when I begin to walk. My wanderings and path are more familiar to You than they are to me. I almost cannot believe it, but, wherever I go, You are with me.
You are with me! blessed be your presence!
