Five Minute Friday – Incline my Ear

Though the flood waters rise
Threaten to overtake me
Darkness of night descends
Dawn of morning light seems so very far away
I will incline my ear to hear
The Lord is singing over me
My heart will be strengthened and encouraged
I will rejoice in the Lord my God
Though obstacles surround me
I will dare to jump over them
Confident and sure
For nothing is too hard for the Lord
Though all come against me
I will remain steadfast in God’s firm foundation
When I feel all alone
And none go with me
I will incline my ear to hear
The Lord singing over me in His loving-kindness

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord will command His loving-kindness in the daytime,
And in the night His song shall be with me—
A prayer to the God of my life.

Psalm 42:8
