God Will Raise You Up

 ‘1 I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,

 And he turned to me and heard my cry’

 

I still remember The Place.

A place I knew too well.

A place that threatened to swallow me.

There I was again, hanging on the edge of that cliff,

My slippery hands throbbing in pain,

My muscles sore,

My soul empty.

And time,

Time went by so slowly.

As darkness was ready to engulf me,

I saw His hands reaching out to touch me.

Those nail-pierced hands that had paid for my sins,

Rescued me again.

 

2He lifted me out of the pit of despair,

Out of the mud and the mire.

He set my feet on solid ground,

And steadied me as I walked along’

 

My lord raised me up.

He became my rock.

And his unfailing love surrounds and protects me.

 

3‘He has given me a new song to sing

A hymn of praise to our God

Many will see what he has done and be amazed

They will put their trust in the Lord’

 

Beloved, do you feel abandoned?

Are you hanging on to life by a thread?

Has something bad left you broken?

Rejoice in your pain,

And praise the Lord.

For He will not leave your side,

An in His time,

He will raise you up.

(The 3 verses in bold are from Psalm 40)
