Not there but here

Not there but here 
by Joel Howard

Life's biggest problem is not out there 
but is in me
It is here

It's not the worries I could do without
Not my oppressors
But here: my doubt

And more than changing all my life
Lord, heal me deeper
Save me inside

Not tangible woes or things to buy
But the grief it causes
This stain inside

Truly, Jesus
Honest, Lord
If you come to me
I can afford
The greatest sorrow
The gravest blow
If you come with me
I'm good, I'll go

If life increases or stays the same
I'll cling to Jesus
Safe in his name
Not there but here
I'll safely stay
