When darkness falls
and you feel you’re all alone
and fear begins to seep into your bones,
when sickness creeps up on you so unawares
and leaves you feeling weak
and ill prepared,
when that time comes;
when you feel you’ve lost control
and only a bitter taste
consumes your soul,
when nothing that you do or say
can make a change
and hopelessness leaves you in a world that feels so strange;
Step forward now and find the home of faith
and call on Jesus – humbly seek his face.
For he has heard your prayers
and seen your tears – and surely he will heal,
for he heals the broken hearted
and binds up every wound – it is his will!
He does not hide his face
from those that call –
Seek him, praise him, honour and revere him,
for he heals all…
…who come to him for strength and joy and life.
You are not forsaken,
God’s presence is like
the surgeon’s sharpest knife –
it cuts through all fears
and transplants love within its place,
such is the awesome mercy of God’s grace.
He will be your strength
and will help you when you call,
have faith because when God is with you – nothing is impossible!
So come and drink from his cup so sweet,
his living waters into your life will seep
and such a medicine will refresh your soul,
God’s love will wash over you
and make you whole.
