Sa Presensya Mo

Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
In thy presence is fulness of joyat thy right hand 
there are pleasures for evermore. (Psalm 16:11)

If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? (Luke 11:11-13)

I can't do this alone. If I do, I am sure to do things wrong. There is so much I don't understand. I am so glad there is this promise. But more than doing my job for God well, I want to live in His presence. It is the one thing I have desired of the Lord, that I will seek after.

Labaw sa gipangandoy (the most to be desired)
Tanang gitinguha (everything I long for)
Namunga ni sa kasing-kasing ko (what is from my heart)
Ug sa Imong presensya, (your presence is)
lamang ko matagbaw (the only place I am satisfied)
Ug sa matag adlaw gitinguha (I long for it every day)

Sa presensya Mo may kaayohan (In your presence there is encouragement/prosper)
Sa presensya Mo kasigurohan (in your presence, security/shelter)
Sa presensya Mo adunay kalipay(in your presence there is joy/happiness)
Sa presensya Mo O Diyos (in your presence, oh God)
Sa presensya Mo O Diyos (in your presence, oh God)
Ako nagtinguha (I long to be)

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. (Psalm 27:4)
