At His Mercy

At His Mercy

When life seems a desert, endless and cold

In the long night of suffering, to fall

Feeling hopeless while dark clouds unfold

Your gentle words bid me recall

I’m at His mercy and I never had it so good!

When dreams held long and close to my heart,

Promises no longer seem mine to embrace

The heavens like brass refusing to part

Your loving counsel reveals The Lord’s grace

I’m at His mercy and I never had it so good!

When fears shadow my nights and my days

Hope eludes my searching, His peace to know

Tears blinding my eyes from The Son’s rays

Your faith tested and tried, His glory does show

I’m at His mercy and I never had it so good!
