When I don't have strength to raise my hands
and praise You,
You are still a God who's worthy of my praise.
When the storms of this world threaten to
engulf me,
I can turn to You and know that You're
unfazed.

I will not forget Your love,
I will not forget Your mercy.
I will hold tight to Your sacrifice,
for that's why I am free.

In the dark and lonely hours of
my midnight,
When my heart longs for what I can't
understand,
I know that I don't need to fear
the darkness,
In the warmth and safety of
Your hand.


I will not forget Your love,
I will not forget Your mercy.
I will hold tight to Your sacrifice,
for that's why I am free.

The truths I hold may sometimes
disappoint me,
But the Truth of You will never
let me down.
And when I stand before You in
Your glory,
I will sing when at Your feet I lay
my crown.

I will not forget Your love,
I will not forget Your mercy.
I will hold tight to Your sacrifice,
for that's why I am free.

Great reminder!
One thought for critique: I think this poem could be even more inspiring if you added more imagery.
Keep up the good work!

This has potential to be turned into a hymn. This rocked for me. Great, great entry. Thanks for the read.
