Lord, when my heart with heavy load
Prevents me hands to heaven hold.
Here show me how to sing your songs,
Reveal to whom my joy belongs
When gloom and fear like heavy clouds
Won’t lift and questions fuel my doubts,
Give me a song to sing to you
Remind me that you walk me through.
When enemies come moving in
When victory’s hope and light grow dim,
Lift peaceful songs to You, my King
Give strength and power as I sing.
(Poem and Pictures, Heidi Viars, 2014)
