UNDERNEATH ARE THE EVERLASTING ARMS (A Song of Hope)

UNDERNEATH ARE THE EVERLASTING ARMS

When oceans of emotions run so deep
When your tears wash away all joy inside
When the sands on the shoreline blink and cry
Oh! Come unto Him, all fears lay aside

Chorus
When oceans of emotions run so deep
When the darkness struggles, its light to keep
Lift your eyes, don’t give up, give up and sleep
’Cause underneath are the Everlasting Arms

When the darkness struggles, its light to keep
When each day seems like a deserted night
When the starlight fades in the battle dim
Oh! Come unto Him, let Him fight your fight

Chorus
When oceans of emotions run so deep
When the darkness struggles, its light to keep
Lift your eyes, don’t give up, give up and sleep
’Cause underneath are the Everlasting Arms

Lift your eyes, don’t give up, give up and sleep
Lift your eyes, weary child, oh! lift your eyes
Yes, you may struggle; but the battle’s won
Oh! Come unto Him, in Him your strength lies

Bridge
And He will catch you, never let you fall
Yes, Jesus loves you, cares for one, for all
His arms of love cannot, will not fail
Arms that once were held with crimson nail

So

Let the winds of time echo, stop the flow
Let His breath dry every falling tear
Always remember, each child who believes
Nighttime will bring blessings and daytime near

Chorus
When oceans of emotions run so deep
When the darkness struggles, its light to keep
Lift your eyes, don’t give up, give up and sleep
’Cause underneath are the Everlasting Arms

UNDERNEATH ARE THE EVERLASTING ARMS (A Song/A Poem of Eternal Comfort)

Underneath Are The Everlasting Arms

And when the day into darkness turns
And heart and soul and mind do yearn
Turn ye unto the Lord above
Cause underneath are the everlasting arms.

Trials may threaten to overtake
But only Him sense does make
When far yonder things still prevail
Look underneath to the everlasting arms.

Weary soul, do not give in
For He alone has taken our sin
Battles above and battles below
All fall into the everlasting arms.

Cry no more, oh do but shine
For victory in Jesus is mine
Nothing else should be a care
For underneath are the everlasting arms.

So when the night into brightness be
Forever secure and wedded to thee
Precious Saviour, yours alone
Underneath are the everlasting arms.
