"But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you..." 1 Corin. 12:9

So many awful things
are happening in this world.
On the news last night,
someone stole a little girl.
A bridge collaspsed, a tornado hit;
Life is so full of alarm.
It makes us feel like hiding
to keep away from harm.

But when I think about You
And Your Sovereignty,
The total lack of my control
makes me want to cling,
so I can sing.

People are seeking refuge,
courage for each new day.
And nothing I can say or do
will explain the bad away.
But the one thing that I know,
the thing I hold on to
is that You love Your people
and provide the way to You.

And when I think about You
and all You've done for me,
the way You've been right with me
throughout my whole journey,
I wanna sing!

When I was growing up,
I was a fearful child,
longing to be rescued
from each and every trial.
Then I chose to believe Your Word
proclaiming Jesus saves;
that anyone can come to You
by the route He's paved.

And when I think about You
and the blessings that You bring,
You're the blessing I love most
I wanna sing!

Today I'm feeling grateful
as I look around
at all the ways You've blessed me
with Your grace that DOES abound.
My children are playing in the yard.
The sun is shining warm.
Fun and laughter rings in the air,
holding so much charm.

I don't know why You've blessed me
in so many different ways
but Your faithful watchcare over me
causes me to praise.
You make me sing!

I could've lived me life
wondering, "What's the point?"
I could still be in misery
with my nose all out of joint.
But now that I am grown,
I live in liberty.
Nothing's really different
except You inside of me!

And when I think about You
and that You died for me
on a painful cross
to pay MY penalty,
I wanna weep.

A song I wrote in the Fall of 2007.
