There’s a peace that comes from sitting
alone at Jesus’ feet,
a knowing He is in control,
although our fears with Him compete.
Feelings can seem much more real
than the promise of His word,
and current voices louder
than His whispers that we’ve heard.
It’s then that we cry out for help
to fix our eyes upon
to One who died and rose for us
Jesus, God the Son.
His Holy Spirit’s given
to open up our eyes,
give us understanding
and thus dispel the lies.
Help our Spirit to cry Abba,
help our lips, to give Him praise,
make His promises reality,
and our downcast eyes to raise.
