We seem to have lots of songs that focus on the experience of worshipping – “Here I am Lord in Your presence” type songs. So in recent years I’ve tried to create songs that will be relevant to the other 6 days and 22 hours of our week! So a few years ago we wrote “Every promise” – a reminder to trust in God’s promises when we fall into sin, when we have difficult decisions to make, situations that we find ourselves in daily life.

“Christ be in my waking” is another of those songs. It’s a reminder to be ‘God-aware’ in all the different parts of our lives – from morning to evening and night, in my thought-life, in the things I say, in the good things, in the sorrows (remembering that he walked the road of sorrow), and in our most desperate moments.

I suppose (without sounding too pretentious!) it’s a song that can accompany you and be a strength and comfort to you in your daily walk.


Christ be in my waking,
As the sun is rising,
In my day of working,
With me every hour.
Christ be in my resting,
As the day is ending,
Calming and refreshing,
Watching through the night.

Christ be in my thinking,
And my understanding,
Guarding me from evil,
Walking in the light.
Christ be in my speaking,
Every word a blessing,
Pure and not deceiving,
Grace to all who hear.

Jesus, this is my devotion:
All my life to know You,
Every day to walk with You.
Saviour, You’re my deepest longing,
You’re the One I live for,
Teach me, Lord, to walk with You.

Christ be in my gladness
For the joy of living,
Thankful for the goodness
Of the Father's hand.
Christ be in my sorrow,
In my day of darkness,
Knowing that I follow
In the steps He trod.

Christ when hope has faded,
Nothing left to cling to,
Every pleasure jaded,
Every well is dry.
Christ the loving Shepherd
Draws me with His kindness,
Leads me from the desert
To the streams of life.
