Waiting for the storm to pass

while i wait for the storm to pass

i have enough time to praise you

i have enough time to spend in your presence

reading and meditating your holy word.

In the midst of the storm teach me

to keep my eyes on you.

When it’s hardest to believe,

remind me of who i am to you.

Lord, you are great and mighty

Nothing in this world compares to you

You stay faithful even when i tend not to be.

while i am waiting for the storm to pass

let me sing you songs of thanksgiving.

You’ve given me a life i would never have dreamed of

peace that only comes from you

And even when it is hard not to quit

even when it is hard not to cry

deep in me i can hear you whisper: “you are not alone, i am here with you”.

This is what i live for, to know that you will never leave me alone

you always hold onto your promises.

While the storm is raging

and the enemies are happy about my downfall,

my sorrows and pains,

i trust in you.
