There are times my travails get tough
and the road I travel seems too rough,
when words of hope are never enough…
Your grace keeps me going, I can’t deny.
There are times I sleep in great despair
and can’t catch breath of fresh air,
when life and love seem so unfair;
Your love keeps me strong, I can’t deny.
There are times I get too tired of life
and keep sailing against stormy strife,
When I almost opt for a rope or knife…
Your power keeps me safe, I can’t deny.
There are times I sway and do wrong
and it gets hard for me to stay strong.
When I fall from the hill where I belong.
Your mercy is my stay, I can’t deny.
I see Your heart in all Your promises
and Your greatness in a billion galaxies.
When I meditate on millions of mysteries,
Your preeminence is all I see, I can’t deny.
