Romans 12:12

The tides of life may rise and fall
The grip of pain entraps is all
But in the midst of grief and sorry
Hope brings joy now for tomorrow

While there’s breath and heart still beating,
Though it too is short and fleeting, 
We cry out the benediction
Overcoming all afflictions

Tested, tried, and tattered too
Broken but sure what to do
We stand steadfast, tightly clinging
To the praise and prayers we’re singing

Father I seek peace and mercy
Be my well for I am thirsty
Take what I can’t stand to bare
Show me that you’re always there

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. - Romans 12:12
