There are days, dear Lord, when I fear
and I let go of your mighty hand
when all around me danger looms here
I am weak and deaf to your commands.
Yet your loving hand never strays from me
How could I have ever taken my eyes away
from your strength and presence free
while I begin to sink beneath this deadly fray?
It is at my worst that I turn again to You
how could I have let go of your strength and might?
Your love shines and pierces all the way through
my heart and within this sinking darkest of night.
Though I, the fool, am ashamed of my misgivings
You clothe me in riches beyond my deserving
Such love I cannot express to you in serving
all my days, all my efforts will I devote into your keeping.
