Faithful

With each wave
And every crashing, of the sea
Against the wall, the fortress
Of You, I find
You to be

More than enough for me

Faithful, and true
Steadfast, in the rain and
Good, forevermore
Even in the trials and
Even in the waves

Still You remain

No matter storms, that loom ahead
No matter waves, that crash around
Still, You remain the same
Faithful, through all days
My Shelter, my Hiding Place

My only One, my only Hope
My God I cling to You!
You, who have never failed me and
You, who never will

I trust, in Your great name alone, I
I cling to You alone!

The Sun Will Shine Again

As promised on that morning when
We opened eyes to see
Darkness gave to morning sun
And storm was blown away

All around was bathed in color
The air was filled with green
Hues of life, reminding us
The sun had shone again

For in that darkest night
When wind was, howling
We feared that day may never come
Nor winter ever turn to spring

But as we huddled under roof and
Heard the wind scream it’s wrath
We heard a quiet voice, do whisper
“The Sun will shine again.”

For that voice, He is faithful
Our Lord, He is good
And He can be trusted, yes,
Even in the darkest storms

For He has used this one, deemed unsurvivable
To cover land with glory of
His own beloved Son

That through the chaos He,
Might usher men back to Him
And turn their hearts, towards Him
To call on Him again

For what is storm, in His sight
What is death and fear against the Almighty
For He is, the faithful God
No matter what storms may bring

And now as we, sit in wind
Of storm now blown away
We can know that, whatever comes next
Our God will be with us and

He will bid the sun to shine again!

My Peace

Standing at the edge
Of an endless precipice
Greater than I
A hundred times over

Stronger than I could ever, ever hope to be

I look into its boundless waters as
It’s winds rage around me
How can I, hope to stand
Is there any hope for me

To weather such a storm?

For I am helpless, against this onslaught of
Nature and of storm
For it is much greater than I
Greater than anything I have ever faced

How can I hope to stand?

And yet as I stand, trembling in fear
Before this grand display of my insignificance
I realize that, very simply
I am not alone

For by me sits, a Light, a Power
Greater than anything I’ve ever known

And in Its eyes I see, the power and the violence of
A love and a justice that rages
Greater than any earthly storm
That burns through the heavens and the earth

I realize that, this Thing is
Something greater than, I could ever understand

And here it is next to me
As I sit trembling

How could I, be afraid, of storm that is
Miniscule in comparison to
This Light that is next to me?

So whatever storm rages
Whatever hurricane may bring
I choose to trust, this God who is

Next to me, who will not fail
He who will not leave me alone
To battle such a storm

So I can rest, as winds rage
And rain pounds on every side
For my God is with me, yes

I am not alone

So whatever storm may bring
Whatever happens next
Even if it rages all around me and

Tears my home to pieces, I
Know that my God, He is faithful
This Lover, He is true

And He has not failed me, no
He has not failed me yet!

So I choose, to trust in Him
As waters rise around me
For He is good, yes my God is faithful

Even in the storms!
