Forlorn and lost and bereft of hope,

            Embraced by fear and pulled down the slope

Of pain and fear and desperation

            And dying from our separation

From our source of life, the God of love

            Who supremely rules from above.

 

In His holiness, He judges all.

            Yet to the sinner, He sends the call

To turn aside from all pride and sin

            And through Christ’s blood he is ushered in

To His presence! Be cleansed and made new!

            Pardoned and changed completely through!

 

O come and find His forgiveness now!

            And set yourself to discover how

Great and good is Jesus’ love for you!

            How beautiful and perfectly true

Is Jesus Who died to set you free

            But lives and reigns eternally!

When golden sun first lights the day
and little songbirds wake and play,
perhaps you hear the Father say,
“I am with you, O My child.”
 
But even when the light is shorn
and gray and cold you find the morn
and trials come that can’t be borne,
He’s still near you, O dear child.
 
When your joy is overflowing
and you reap fruits of gladness’ sowing,
of fear and hate there seems no knowing,
bless His name, O happy child.
 
But when all life is filled with woe
and grief and loss are all you know,
and one more step’s too far to go,
let Him carry you, O weary child.

 

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.  The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.   And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” – Philippians 4:4-7 ESV
