To the depths of all despair,
A sweet Melody soothes my soul,
Like a warm summer breeze.
When the world is full of turmoil,
When all seems to go wrong,
A Melody falls on my ear,
To quiet my aching heart.
When I feel like a failure,
Alone and trapped in dread,
My spirit swells with joy,
As the Melody passes by.
When I’ve been hurt by a loved one,
Betrayed and left to cry,
I feel the hug of peaceful arms,
The Melody dries my eyes.
When all I see is fighting,
When hate rings loud in the streets,
A Melody shelters my heart,
And fright is unknown to me.
When my friends go before me,
And I’m left with only memories,
I am tenderly comforted,
As a Melody calms my mind.
When the trumpet of the Lord sounds,
The earth trembling in fear,
I will hear that gentle Melody,
My essence wrapped in hope.
When I see the earth fall away,
And the world is dead and dark,
A Melody will bring light to me,
To bring forever bliss.
When everyone around me questions,
This peace that I have found,
I share with them my Melody,
And speak His wonderful name.
