My Hope in Christ - by D. Bailey\
My Hope in Christ
By D. Bailey
There was a time when I felt alone
Forsaken at its best
And in this time all hope was gone
My soul could get no rest
Heavy laden, in my journey
I would pretend I did not have a care
But that would not last; the day would come
When this weight I could not bear.
It was these moment in life – the regrets;
The pain; the guilt. All the loved ones I left behind
The barrier my heart has built
But it was all in vain. Because these walls they
Could not stand.
Who knew that God could reach
so low? Who knew He had a plan? So, from the valley He
lifts me up and plants my feet back on the ground
and says, "My son, the time has come – let's turn your life
Just be patient; day by day pray for strength;
I'll lead your way. Sometimes you'll run; sometimes
you'll walk, other times you'll say, "I can't."
But, it's in these times you'll rise with wings; you'll not
grow weary; and you shall not faint!
So with strength
renewed; day by day and
Jesus Christ to guide my way
Who still is the hope I thought was gone.
That assures my soul
I'm not alone.
He holds the key to life, death, and to much more!
and carries the power to restore.
So I'll put my trust in Him alone,
who holds the key to Life, Death , and so much more!
and carries the
Power to Restore.
So I'll put my trust in Him alone until the day he
calls me home.
Then all my pain, my regrets,
and my guilt He'll clear.
When he wipes away my every tear
and he'll gently hold me in such
a warm embrace that truly defines
His Love, His Mercy, His Grace; and
He'll whisper, "For your heart,
a faith profound, my gift to you-Salvation's
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord
Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
with wings like eagles; the shall run and not be weary
and they shall walk and not faint.
