LEAD ME THROUGH THE STORM (A Song for When Life is Overwhelming)

Lead Me Through the StormWhen clouds are forming overhead
When doubts arise inside your head
Just look
Look
Look to the One who sees
Loneliness, hopelessness
In each pulse of your breaking heart
Each pulse of your breaking, broken heart
And hears each mournful plea

Take this heart
And make it tender
Lead me through the storm
Take this heart
And I’ll surrender
New life, new love in me form

When the clouds have borne their raindrops
When the doubts, the tears have stopped
You looked
Looked
Looked to the One who saw
Cradled and healed
Each pulse of love
Each pulse of love
In each beat, each beat and more

Chorus
Lord, You heard and answered my plea
Then gave more
Yes, You heard and answered each plea
And gave so much more
That’s why
That’s why
With thanksgiving, I’ll forever adore

Yes, You took this heart
And made it tender
You led me through the storm
You took this heart
And I surrendered
New life, new love
In me formed

Chorus
Lord, You heard and answered my plea
Then gave more
Yes, You heard and answered each plea
And gave so much more
That’s why
That’s why
With thanksgiving, I’ll forever adore
With thanksgiving, I’ll forever adore

  1. My heart was singing along with you two, as I read this song, especially the same six lines that Betty Jo singled out here. They say it all for me, too. God Bless You, Liana, and thanks again for sharing!

    PS. In answer to your earlier question, Liana, I don’t have a blog now, and am just embarking on visiting a few wonderful blogs, and beginning to comment, and enjoying fellowshiping with you all. Am a close friend of Betty Jo’s.

      1. Oh, thanks, Liana. Lol, I couldn’t tell if the first one was awaiting moderation or not. Yes, we are both wonderfully blessed, and also blessed to have found you, too, sister.

  2. These words are so beautiful. I’m going to use them as a prayer:
    Take this heart
    And make it tender
    Lead me through the storm
    Take this heart
    And I’ll surrender
    New life, new love in me form
