Sometimes truth is clothed in thorns
Your heart gets overtaken, tattered and torn
Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan
What you thought you had, no longer stands
When everything around you is ripped away
What is it that will make you stay?
Is it integrity or heart or internal drive?
Is it your own source of power that will make you thrive?
Not for me, not for this woman
It’s Jesus that’s alive, it’s Him who lives within
I can’t stand on my own two feet
They wobble, they shake, they fall, I am beat
Lord lift me up – give me clarity
Open my eyes that are blind, help me see
I never had it
all figured out
I know that now, and I want to shout!
You and Your plans will always stand
It’s You who makes me steadfast, by Your right hand
I will lean on You in this pain
I will trust that only in Christ there is gain
There’s no profit in my own motives and desires
Only the Lord knows how my future transpires
I trust in you. I trust in you my God.
I lay my head down and my hands applaud
I’ll clap, I’ll sing, I’ll rejoice in You
For in the end, and the beginning, You were always true
