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.
