Thou Art My God
This song was written by a friend of mine, Christine Schaubert. She gave me a copy of it shortly after she wrote it in 2004. I've kept it in my music binder all this time and have played and sung it more times than I can count, but only in my private time. I used it as a prayer to the Lord and a reminder to myself of how worthy He is of all my praise!
When the last music schedule came out for specials at church I was looking through my music for "just the right song" when this one came to mind. I had never tried it on the harp before and thought I'd give it a shot. I checked to make sure we could mic both voice and harp at church and gave it a go. Lots of practice (notice all the lever changes in the middle!) and much prayer went into this piece.
I hope it is a blessing to you!
Thou Art My God
by Christine Nicole Schaubert
Lord, Thy way are higher than my ways;
Thy thoughts are way out of my sight.
But Thy Word is true and Thy works are right.
Thou givest a song in the night.
For Thou art holy; Thou art worthy;
And my praise shall always be ever and only of Thee.
To know Thee is life;
To love Thee is joy;
To trust Thee is peace.
Thou art my God.
Lord, sometimes I'm tempted to doubt You -
When worries and cares cloud my mind.
Dispel all my fears and wipe away my tears.
My hope, Lord, in Thee let me find.
Lord, my heart could never imagine
All the plans that You have for my life.
But perfect and pure, Your promises endure.
My hope, Lord, in Thee is secure.
