In Your Grace, I Abide

For today I am here,			
Tomorrow shall appear,		
Though I yearn to be with You, Lord.
In Your grace I abide			
Through life’s valley’s I stride,		
Lost within my foolish pride.
When darkness fills the day, 
I seldom kneel to pray
To ask You for support.

I look up to the sky
And I want to know, why?
Where then is my Lord? 
I say.

On my own I’m alone
Terrified I hide, 
I run from You away. 
But, when all seems at its worst 
You come to me first, 
Through the solace of Your Word.

You rid from me forever
The chains of sin, You sever
In Your righteousness, I am clothed.

No deed of my own, 
By faith in You alone
Do I place my confidence. 

As I sleep soundly this night, 
May I wake in Your light, refreshed  
To greet a new day.
