Just When I Thought

So just when I thought
It is well, ‘Praise the Lord’ at long last
Along comes another test
And once again I relive the past

So much sadness, tears
I cannot understand
This wheel, it just keeps turning
Spinning webs of too soft sand

And on this whirling sand
No security is found
To find a foothold fast
On a haven needed sound

But there is much strength deep within
Hidden, revealed and yet
For underneath that sinking sand
Is solid rock on which my feet do set

HE’LL BE WITH ME (Song Lyrics)

Written for a dear loved one who is hurting …

tropical storm is coming

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

And so I cry
Father in heaven, I know You’re there; but I feel so very alone
Father, please speak the Word, and lift me to Your throne

All plans are crumbling fast, each day delivers grief
I’m being cornered, and it’s shaking my belief

I want to do what’s right, and shun all that is wrong
But waves and flames around me, have silenced my song

Each time I get back up, here comes the floor again
Trying hard to see You, forgetting all this pain

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

But I know You’re there, and because of this, I say
Lord be magnified this day, magnified this day

For I can do nothing, and nothing I can do
To bring about deliverance, it’s up to You

And so I’ll rest in the storm, sing in the trial
This is not forever, only for a short while

I will get stronger, and the sorrows soon will leave
As long as my beating heart to Your heart, can cleave

I’ll listen to His word
For His word is all I need
His word created, sustains me
His word will always feed
And one day I’ll stand before Him
And be shown my life in His
I’ll see His protective arms locked in mine
With each breath He ever freed

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning
