Wait for the Lord

Isaiah 40:29-31

29 He gives strength to the weary
and strengthens the powerless.
30 Youths may faint and grow weary,
and young men stumble and fall,
31 but those who trust in the Lord
will renew their strength;
they will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary;
they will walk and not faint.


Reclaim me from the depths, O Lord
From the pit of despair, rescue my soul

Weak and pitiful is my body
My own strength cannot save me
My force of will is a child's fist against a mighty wall
My resolve, a tiny stone in a hurricane

Anchor me, O Lord, in the harbor of Your faithfulness
When the storm rages, cover me with Your right hand
And let me not be afraid
