#UTCOP – Praying Through Poetry #2
by Joy Lenton
You are our Rock, our Strength in times of trouble
through all the length of days, in every struggle
Whenever hardship comes our way You’re there
responding swiftly to our every prayer
Your presence brings a lasting peace
with comfort, reassurance, ease
Even though we often feel alone
You never leave us on our own
Holy Spirit continually reveals
You as the One who saves and heals
The Word made flesh who imparts
truth and hope to weary hearts
So no matter what calamities we will face
may we always rely on Your continual grace
Trust in the message seen and heard
Love poured out in Your written word
