In Christ

In my despair

You are my hope

In my darkness

You are the light unto my path

When I’m mourning

You comfort me

In my sorrow

You give me joy

When I’m lonely

You are with me

When I’m betrayed and all turn against me

You are my defender

When all is lost

I find riches in Christ Jesus

When I sin

You forgive me

When I’m weak

You strengthen me

When I’m tempted

You provide a way out

When I lack understanding

You give me wisdom

In a world build on shifting sands

You are my Solid Rock

When lies abound

You are truth

When the world tells me I should fit in

You consecrate me

When my soul is disquieted

You give me Peace

When I’m prideful

You humble me

When I’m hated

You love me

When words fail me

You intercede for me

When enemies surround me

You are my friend

When stuck in miry clay

You freed me

When I deserve judgment

You give me mercy

When defiled by the filth of my own sin

You cleansed me

In the unworthiness of my sin

You redeemed me

When I deserved condemnation

Christ was crucified

In death

You are Life
