Promise of Your Mercy

In the midst of the struggle
You pour out Your refreshing rain
In the midst of many sorrows
There is great joy to be gained.

And when my heart is heavy laden
You cleanse my deepest stain
And when I’m hurtin’ the most
Oh Lord, You walk me through the pain.

Your arms are holding me close to You
Your heart beats with a love that endures
Your eyes see me how one day I’ll be
Your voice whispers the promise of Your mercy.

And in my times of trouble
Your Holy Spirit comforts me.
And in the trying of my faith
A way of escape is made for me.

And when my knees are weak and shakin’
Oh Lord, You bring stability
And when my feeble arms are heavy
You gird my hands up from beneath.

Your arms are holding me close to You.
Your heart beats with a love that endures.
Your eyes see me how one day I’ll be
Your voice whispers the promise of Your mercy.
