When the Road is Rough

rugged-2106709_1920.jpg

When the road is rough,
Hold on to the words of the Master.
When your pace has slowed
And you just can’t go any faster.

Put your hand in His
For He NEVER will let you go;
On a mountaintop
Or the lowest depths you know.

Just wait on the Lord
For He will renew your strength.
With wings like an eagle,
Friend – you will rise again.

When you wake or sleep,
The Lord watches over you;
Your soul He keeps –
His word is forever true.

He’s the King of Kings;
Jesus, your greatest Friend
He’s Alpha and Omega,
There from beginning to end.

Rest In The Lord

Truly My Soul


God’s word is sure for us today,

amidst the storms of life.
He says within our hearts “Be still”
with words of hope and light.
We cannot see tomorrow –
or know what He has planned,
but we can know His peace within
when led by His dear hands.

In humbleness before Him, as
we seek to do His will,
His light upon our pathway keeps
on shining brighter still.
He bids us rest from worry –
He tells us not to fret.
All evil He will banish –
we’ll see His power yet.

His eyes are on the righteous and
He listens to their cry.
We only need to trust Him for
His word He can’t deny.
His word is full of healing –
He’ll take away your pain,
restoring all that you have lost;
you will come through again.

He’ll blow upon the waters and
will cause them soon to flee.
Just hold onto His promises;
keep waiting patiently.
This world is full of struggles –
each day may be a test,
but “Come to Me…” our Saviour says
“and I will give you rest”.
