I trust in you, my God
(Psalm 25:2; NLT).

1. I lift my hands to you in secret,
Trusting you will hear my prayers.

2. I lift my mind to you in stillness,
Trusting you will ease my cares.

3. I lift my heart to you in silence,
Trusting you will pardon me.

4. I lift my soul to you in darkness,
Trusting you will set me free.

Pray continually
(1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).

You understand

With thanks to Walter Rane

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows
(John 16:33; NLT).

1. You understand our struggles
And misfortunes;
You understand our failures,
And our fears.

2. You understand our losses
And afflictions;
You understand our anguish,
And our tears.

3. You understand our secrets
And temptations;
You understand our lives –
Each bitter pill.

4. You understand the tests
We must endure, Lord,
For you have shared them all –
And share them still.
