I will face my fears
Come what may
I will slay each demon
Appearing each day
I will be brave, I will be strong
I will sing the victor’s song!
I will go forth once night is done
And look towards the shining sun
I will catch each ray upon my blade
My trust, my hope will never fade!
To God Be Glory and
Dare to be happy don’t shy away
Reach out and touch the joy of today
Life is for living, give it a try
Open your heart to that sun in the sky.
Dare to be loving and trusting and true
Treasure the hours with those close to you
Dare to be kind it’s more fun than you know
Give joy to others and watch your own grow.
Dare to admit all your blessings and then
Every day count them all over again
Dare to be happy and don’t be afraid
This is the day God willfully made.
It’s scary, it sure is. When the rug is pulled from under your feet. I flounder with my flailing arms, grasping for an anchor. Who will catch me, who will care? I throw the question to the air. But this I know and this I trust. I will be lifted to a higher ground. I walked in courage, I walked with faith. And courage and faith will see me right.
Powerless to do what is right
Powerless to get strength from the light
Powerless to smile through my pain
Powerless to escape the cold rain
Powerless to stop my heart bleed
Powerless I fall to my knees
There is power in weakness
I have to believe.
Let them eat cake
Said the ruthless to the rogue
Let them eat crumbs
Said the prince to the king
Let them eat dust
Said the wealthy to the world
Give them flowing water
Fresh and free and cool
Said the Father to His Son.
I lived in fear for years on end
My soul was tied and bound
I had no place outside my realm
No open path that I could tell
I gave up hope, resigned to life
My bed was made so down I laid
But change came by and saw the heart
My tears had nearly drowned
I closed my eyes and lift my arms
I surrendered all to God
Please help me, Lord, my life is yours
I have nowhere else to go
He heard my prayers and felt my pain
And wiped it all away
I thank you Lord for all you’ve done
For all my life might be
I’ll live my days to glorify
My living hope in Thee!
Night doesn’t last forever
And with the breaking of each dawn
We are promised strength for the day
And the brightest
I’ll follow the signs
Where they might lead
I’ll follow the light
Through a jumbled maze
I will trust in the source
That higher power
Of heaven and earth
And the universe
I will trust in grace
For this I know
My Lord loves me –
He loves me so!
I am healed
And so I sing
My heart rejoices
I am full with
Joy and gladness
A love that overflows
For I know my Father loves me
He cares about my soul
I am His child
He is my Lord
I praise His name
Everything we have
And everything we’ve been given
Are temporary gifts
Until we reach our heaven.
Blue skies above
And green trees below
Reflect our Father’s love
Because the Bible tells us so!
