Why should I despair when I feel weak?
I experience Your true strength in my weakness,
Why should I chase after happiness?
Your joy overwhelms my soul,
Why should I feel all alone?
You shall never leave nor forsake me,
Why should I watch darkness cover my morning?
Your grace helps me start my day new,
Why should I fear the words of men?
Your love is forever my courage,
Why should I regret what was lost?
Your blood marks my new birth,
Why should I despair over the old?
You have promised me a new beginning,
Why should I withhold Your blessings for only myself?
My heart is eager to share Your Word,
Why should I desire for a better life?
Your perfect plan unfolds as I speak,
In Your arms I am loved,
At Your feet I am humbled,
By Your hand I am lifted,
No longer will my house be filled with mourning,
But with songs of a thankful heart.
