When the words are sharp and cut deep
When the road is longer than you think
When all seems lost and unredeemed
And your faith is stumbling underneath the weight

When the struggle feels not worth the pain
And the darkness seems so unrestrained
When tenderness begins to fade
And hope feels like another world away

When you wake up in a stranger’s arms
And the comfort that was there is gone
When you wake to find in morning light
The grace you thought you knew had been withdrawn

Walking silently beside, leaves no room or space to hide
Soft as dawn and cool as night, there is a voice that quietly abides

When the fighting rages all around
And you try your best but you still lose ground
When the loss is greater than the gain
And the cost is too much to explain

When the grief comes rushing in like waves
And you mourn the mess you did not create
When you stand up just to be knocked down
And you’ve kept your questions to yourself

A voice is calling in the desert, where there is no hope of water:
“Come and drink and have your fill, the pain is real but you will be renewed.”
