Words and music by Bob Hartman

In the evening when I start to pray
I think about this day
Another page is turned forever
Another yesterday
And as the story of my life unfolds
I know You've read it all
Another line to be continued
Will I stand or fall

Open book - to You I am an open book
You know every page by heart
From the ending to the start
Open book - my life is like an open book
As I read between the lines
It's Your love that truly binds this open book

When the cover of this book is closed
The final chapter read
I hope You find it worth the reading
I hope 'well done' is said

Cover to cover
Lord, You know me
And what I want to be
As You read the pages of my heart
Please tell me what You see
