From the composers:
"Dedicated to the memory of our friend and Church Elder,  Larry Miller."

  1.  If I fly up to the clouds in heaven, You are there. You are there.
      If I sink into the depths of earth, You are there. You are there.
      You have sheltered me behind and front, You have put Your hand on me.
      To what else can Your love for me compare? You are there.
  2.  You have searched me, Lord, you know my ways, You are there. you are there.
      When I fall asleep and when I wake, You are there. You are there.
      There is not a word that I can speak that You don't know perfectly.
      To what else can Your love for me compare? You are there.
  3.  In the blackness of the darkest night - You are there. You are there.
      And the darkness is to Thee as light -- You are there. You are there.
      Hidden caverns cannot hide from Thee, secret islands in the sea.
      To what else can Your love for me compare? You are there.
  4.  Look within me, God, and know my heart; You are there. You are there.
      Test me now, O Lord, to learn my thoughts; You are there. You are there.
      Take the baneful motives from my heart. Lead me in your loving way.
      To what else can Your love for me compare? You are there.
